The hearing aims to examine the Committee’s role in protecting the rights of people with disabilities through the petitions it handles. Each year the Committee receives a considerable number of petitions related to the difficulties people with disabilities face, including in access to employment, insurance, education and public transport. The discussions will focus first on the protection activities of the different members of the EU Framework monitoring the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities and before turning to concrete examples of complaints.
