FRA independent living project presented to UN Disability Committee

FRA provided input on how Article 19 (the right to live independently and be included in the community) of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) can be monitored to the CRPD Committee on 19 April in Geneva.

The presentation formed part of a wider discussion on Article 19. Building on written input provided by FRA to the Committee in February, FRA drew on its current research on independent living to highlight how human rights indicators can help assess CRPD implementation at the national level.
