United Nations consultation on disability-inclusive policies

 

etrSoon the United Nations will hold an event
to discuss rules and laws that help people with disabilities
to be included in society.

Before the event, they would like to collect information
on how current laws are working to help people with disabilities.

If you would like to have your say on how much
you get to make your own choices
then you can open the questionnaire in
EnglishFrench or Spanish here.

Please send your responses to both
sr.disability@ohchr.org and
Ansofie.leenknecht@edf-feph.org.
before 15 May 2016.

 

In October 2016, the United Nations General Assembly will discuss disability-inclusive policies.
Ms. Catalina Devandas-Aguilar, the Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, is conducting a study to gather data and constructive information to present at the event. She has devised a questionnaire and welcomes all input, from organisations to individuals.

The survey aims to investigate the right of persons with disabilities to participate in decision-making. It does this through enquiring about the legislative and policy framework concerning support services, accessibility, non-discrimination, and the implementation and monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals for persons with disabilities in your country.

Please find the questionnaire available in word format in EnglishFrench or Spanish here.

The European Disability Forum are also interested to hear your views. Please include them when sending your responses.

Please send your submissions by email to sr.disability@ohchr.org and Ansofie.leenknecht@edf-feph.org by 15 May 2016.
