Do You Feel Your Rights Are Being Respected?
An exciting opportunity to learn more about the UN CRDP has come up and we want to invite you to take part. Join us online, bring your lunch, discuss, learn and be part of the change for disabled people!
Since its adoption by the UN General Assembly on 13 December 2006, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (CRDP) has been a major global catalyst for the progression of disabled people’s rights.
The CRDP became one of the most quickly supported international human rights treaties in history and it now has 163 signatories. Governments who ratify the CRDP agree to be examined every few years to check how far the rights of Deaf and Disabled people set out in the treaty are being fulfilled. Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations (DDPOs) play a key role in the examination process, submitting “shadow” reports to the UN Committee responsible for the CRDP.
This workshop will give an over-view of the CRDP and the shadow reporting process. Participants will also help shape the next shadow report as DDPOs prepare for the next examination of the UK under the CRDP.
