At the "Towards Inclusion" conference, the Commissioner for Equality found strong words against institutionalisation. EPSA member Elisabeta Moldovan talked about her experiences growing up in institutions.
The “Europe in Action” conference happened from 5-7 June. For the conference, we went to Vilnius. Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania. We talked about independent living for people with intellectual disabilities. And about inclusion.
Silence, stigma, not being believed: This is what makes it so difficult to talk about violence against women. For women with intellectual disabilities, these barriers are even higher – especially if they are living in institutions, segregated from the rest of society, with no one who would listen.
