UN’s disability expert on rights of older people receives input from FRA

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the rights of people with disabilities requested input to a study on the rights of older people with disabilities.

The agency responded to this by submitting, on 15 April, a compilation of relevant passages published by the agency in recent years.

This follows an established practice since some years, with submissions to UN special rapporteurs and treaty bodies as well as under the Universal Periodic Review of the UN Human Rights Council.
