Conference on autonomy and inclusion for people with disabilities

In Copenhagen, on 7-8 June 2012, the FRA is organising a conference on autonomy and inclusion together with the Danish Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration, and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR).

The conference will allow participants to discuss the disability work of the FRA, DIHR and the Danish Ministry. The FRA's latest disability reports, which will be presented during the event, will give an overview of the EU situation. There will also be concrete examples from Denmark and other Member States to illustrate the state of affairs nationally. Participants will be able to discuss practical suggestions and network with others working on disability rights.

FRA director Morten Kjærum highlights some of the issues being raised at the conference in the video below:
