The World Congress on Adult Guardianship is an unparalleled international gathering of guardianship advocates to examine problems from new perspectives and offer solutions from multiple viewpoints and cultures. Each World Congress offers opportunities to learn and collaborate by bringing together those involved in adult guardianship, as well as aging, disability, and elder rights from around the globe. All participants bring a commitment to examine the best ways to shape guardianship systems so that they consistently treat vulnerable populations with dignity and respect.

Approximately 400 delegates, including academics, attorneys, court officials, judges, disability advocates, government officials, guardians, and fiduciaries from 20 countries have participated in previous Congresses.
