Experts discuss political participation of people with disabilities

The Agency will join experts convened by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) to discuss the participation of people with disabilities in political and public life on 22 June.

During the meeting in Skopje, the Agency will highlight some of the steps it has taken to mainstream the rights of people with disabilities into its work and activities. The meeting aims to exchange updates and discuss in greater detail the areas of work ODIHR plans to focus on in the future, including: participation of people with disabilities in national parliament and political parties; and strengthening consultation mechanisms between national governments and disabled people’s organisations.
