    The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities commits both the EU and all of its Member States to realising the right of persons with disabilities to live independently in the community – which includes achieving deinstitutionalisation for those residing in institutional settings. But much remains to be done to make this a reality in practice. This report presents the main insights gained during fieldwork on the drivers of and barriers to deinstitutionalisation. Focusing on the local level, it gives voice to a diverse set of actors – most importantly, to people with disabilities themselves.

    Children with disabilities face significant barriers to enjoying their fundamental rights. They are often excluded from society, sometimes living in facilities far from their families. They are also denied access to basic services, such as health care and education, and endure stigma and discrimination, as well as sexual, physical and psychological violence. FRA scrutinised the important but underreported issue of violence against children with disabilities, carrying out desk research and conducting interviews with knowledgeable stakeholders. This report presents the results of that research.

There are many reasons why adults may find themselves in a situation of vulnerability - because of their age, health or disability. Vulnerable people are at greater risk of unfair treatment, exploitation or abuse. And cross-border settings can lead to additional obstacles. It's time to address these challenges and identify the needs of vulnerable adults so everyone can enjoy their fundamental rights.

dieser Feldforschung und die Stellungnahmen der
FRA diesbezüglich zusammengefasst.

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of rights protection. The European Pillar of Social Rights marked an important move towards a more ‘social Europe’. But, as experiences with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights underscore, agreement on a text is merely a first step. Even in its eighth year as the EU's binding bill of rights, the Charter's potential was not fully exploited, highlighting the need to more actively promote its use.

Das europäische Antidiskriminierungsrecht verbietet insbesondere nach Maßgabe der Antidiskriminierungsrichtlinien der EU, des Artikels 14 der Europäischen Menschenrechtskonvention sowie des Protokolls Nr. 12 zu dieser Konvention die Diskriminierung in einer ganzen Reihe von Bereichen und aus einer Vielzahl von Gründen. Dieses Handbuch untersucht den europäischen Rechtsrahmen zur Nichtdiskriminierung, der sich auf diese beiden Quellen als einander ergänzende Systeme gründet, auf die unterschiedslos Bezug genommen wird, soweit sie sich überschneiden; zugleich wird gegebenenfalls auf bestehende Unterschiede aufmerksam gemacht.
