FRA presents its opinion on UN Disability Convention Monitoring to European Parliament

FRA was invited to present its Opinion concerning requirements under Article 33(2) of the CRPD within the EU context to the European Parliament’s CRPD Network on 6 July in Strasbourg.

Support was voiced by MEPs for having a legal basis for the EU framework, something suggested in the Opinion. The network is focused on mainstreaming disability issues across the Parliament, both in legislative terms and regarding the Parliament as a public administration.
