National human rights institutions discuss monitoring UN Disability Convention

On 9 June in Brussels, FRA took part in the meeting of the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions’ (ENNHRI) working group on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

The working group brings together representatives of NHRIs that are part of their national frameworks to promote, protect and monitor implementation of the CRPD. The meeting focused on reviewing the working group’s work plan, as well as preparing for the upcoming seminar on Article 13 of the CRPD (Access to justice) which will take place in November in Berlin. FRA is an observer of the working group.
