FRA releases findings from its research on political participation of people with disabilities

Ahead of the European Parliament elections, FRA will outline some of the difficulties people with disabilities have in exercising their right to political participation.

Together with the European Commission, FRA developed a set of human rights indicators on the right to political participation, as described in the UN’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The research shows how this right is being respected, promoted and fulfilled across the EU.
