A quick update on the CRPD: as you know, the Convention and its Optional Protocol (that allows individual complaints to the new Committee) entered into force on 3 May this year when 20 countries ratified it. Today I am pleased to report that the Convention has 41 ratifications and 137 signatories, while 25 states have ratified the OP and 79 have signed it.
On Nov. 3, the 12 members of the Committee were elected.
One of the greatest achievements of the CRPD is through the recognition in international law that persons with disabilities are full and active members of society, with rights and entitlements, rather than people dependent on good-will or charity or people to be approached from a medical perspective.
