The UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is organising a general discussion concerning the right to work and employment. This is done in preparation for the writing of a General Comment on Article 27 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The purpose of General Comments is to guide states that have signed the Convention to comply with its requirements.
EUCAP has contributed to this discussion by compiling a written submission, summarizing many of the key concerns expressed by our member organisations. All submissions, 98 in total, are available on the web page that provides information about the discussion.
The two sessions of General Discussion, starting at 12.30 Central European Time on 22nd and 24th March, can be viewed on UN Web TV.
