FRA took part in an event to discuss the role of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in monitoring implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

In its presentation, FRA focused on the lessons learned from its research work on independent living on how to conduct inclusive research projects. It also spoke about its capacity building work on developing CRPD indicators.

The event looked at the monitoring obligations flowing from the CRPD. It covered how monitoring bodies should interact with the CRPD Committee and how they could cooperate with other bodies and civil society.

The Ombudsman of the Republic of North Macedonia and the UN Office in North Macedonia organised the conference. It took place on 2 March.
