FRA took part in a virtual webinar as part of the European Network on Independent Living’s ‘Freedom Surf’.
FRA focused on its research on independent living and associated monitoring tools.
The webinar on 23 September featured a panel event on how the Committee of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and activists monitor the implementation of CRPD’s right to independent living and being included in the community internationally, nationally, and locally. The panel included the Vice-Chair of the CRPD Committee and the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
ENIL organised the event in partnership with the Independent Living Institute (ILI), Sweden.
