New UN Convention Guarantees Rights for Persons with Disabilities.
PDF File Size: 131 KB | Download   
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) became the first international human rights instrument to come into force in the 21st century when on 3 May Ecuador became the 20th state to ratify the treaty.
The Convention does not create new rights for the estimated 650 million people
around the world with disabilities, but aims to ensure that the benefits of existing
rights are fully extended and guaranteed. This rights-based approach represents a paradigm shift from the previous charitable approach to persons with disabilities
(PWDs). By ratifying the Convention, States commit themselves to enact laws and other measures to improve disability rights, and to abolish legislation, customs and practices that discriminate against persons with disabilities.
