Choice and control: the right to independent living - Summary report (6.95 MB)

Overview

The right to live independently, this summary shows, is a multifaceted concept encompassing more than policies on deinstitutionalisation alone. While these are of tremendous importance, for community living to be truly successful, deinstitutionalisation should be accompanied by a range of social policy reforms in the areas of education, healthcare, employment, culture and, not least, support services. Only then will the rights enshrined in the CRPD become reality for all persons with disabilities.
