Study on Challenges and Good Practices in the Implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities : Executive Summary

Jan 1, 2011
The 'Study on Challenges and Good Practices in the Implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities' aimed to analyse in detail the obligations set forth in the Convention, and in particular to gather information about the various practices related to the implementation of the Convention by the EU and its Member States. The goal was to identify challenges that may hinder the full and effective implementation of the Convention, and measures that would facilitate the achievement of its objectives ('good practices').
