In 2019, Inclusion Europe focused on elections
as the main topic of the year.
That is because 2019 was the year
of the European elections.
To end that focus on the elections,
we published a document about the situation in the European Union
when it comes to legal capacity.
Legal capacity is strictly related
to the right to vote.
Many people with intellectual disabilities in the EU
still don’t have legal capacity.
This means that:
- they cannot fully take part in society
- they cannot decide for themselves
This situation has to change.
It is against the UN CRPD.
Things got better in some countries in the EU,
but there is still a long way to go.
Our work brings the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families where decisions about their future are made.
This has always been incredibly important. It is even more so with the Covid pandemic drastic impact on their rights and lives.
Being visible and vocal on issues directly affecting millions of people requires your support.
Become Inclusion Europe supporter and help us keep doing our work.
