International conference examines inclusion of people with disabilities

On 22 March, FRA will take part in an international conference in Sofia on ‘Equal enjoyment of human rights and freedoms by persons with disabilities: achievements and challenges’.

The conference is being organised under the Bulgarian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. It aims to facilitate exchange of experiences and best practices on ensuring equality and supporting full participation in the community of people with disabilities. FRA will present its work on indicators and its findings on how the UN’s disability convention, the CRPD, acts as a driver for change, and how it is influencing law and policy reforms across EU Member States.
