What does the UN think of EU disability policy?

21 October 2015

The European Union is a party to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This is the first and, thus far, the only human rights treaty to which the EU is a party. In accordance with Article 35 of the Convention, the EU submitted its State report on the steps which has taken to implement the Convention last year. In April of this year, the Committee linked to the Convention responded by issuing the EU with a List of Issues – in essence a long list of questions relating to implementation of the Convention.
