by An-Sofie Leenknecht, Carmine Conte, Catherine Naughton et al.
European Disability Forum (EDF), November 2016
This issue is the first in a series of human rights reports on the rights of persons with disabilities in Europe and gives an overview of the state of play on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in Europe. The purpose of this series is to track progress over time on the realisation of the rights of persons with disabilities in Europe. The series will stimulate comparison between European countries and study key aspects of the implementation of the CRPD at the national and European levels. Each year a new topic will be selected based on what is most relevant to European Disability Forum’s members and policymakers across Europe.
