    The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities commits both the EU and all of its Member States
    to realising the right of persons with disabilities to live independently in the community – which includes
    achieving deinstitutionalisation for those residing in institutional settings. But much remains to be done to
    make this a reality in practice. This report presents the main insights gained during fieldwork on the drivers of and barriers to
    deinstitutionalisation. Focusing on the local level, it gives voice to a diverse set of actors – most importantly,
    to people with disabilities themselves.

    Children with disabilities face significant barriers to enjoying their fundamental rights. They are often excluded from society, sometimes living in facilities far from their families. They are also denied access to basic services, such as health care and education, and endure stigma and discrimination, as well as sexual, physical and psychological violence. FRA scrutinised the important but underreported issue of violence against children with disabilities, carrying out desk research and conducting interviews with knowledgeable stakeholders. This report presents the results of that research.

There are many reasons why adults may find themselves in a situation of vulnerability - because of their age, health or disability. Vulnerable people are at greater risk of unfair treatment, exploitation or abuse. And cross-border settings can lead to additional obstacles. It's time to address these challenges and identify the needs of vulnerable adults so everyone can enjoy their fundamental rights.

2019, this paper presents developments in the situation

L’Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’Union
européenne
(FRA) a souhaité contribuer à une mise
en oeuvre plus efficace de la désinstitutionnalisation,
en rassemblant des preuves concrètes de ce
qui fonctionne ou non sur le terrain. À cette fin,
l’Agence a mené des recherches approfondies sur
le terrain dans cinq États membres de l’UE (Bulgarie,
Finlande, Irlande, Italie et Slovaquie) à différents
stades du processus de désinstitutionnalisation.
Le présent résumé fournit les principaux résultats de
ces recherches menées sur le terrain ainsi que les
avis de la FRA qui en découlent.

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of rights protection. The European Pillar of Social Rights marked an important move towards a more ‘social Europe’. But, as experiences with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights underscore, agreement on a text is merely a first step. Even in its eighth year as the EU's binding bill of rights, the Charter's potential was not fully exploited, highlighting the need to more actively promote its use.

institution aux modalités de résidence de proximité.

Le droit européen en matière de non-discrimination, constitué en particulier des directives européennes relatives à la non-discrimination, de l’article 14 de la Convention européenne des droits de l’homme et du Protocole nº 12 à cette convention, interdit toute discrimination fondée sur un certain nombre de motifs et exercée dans un certain nombre de contextes. Le présent manuel examine la législation européenne dans ce domaine, telle qu’elle découle de ces deux sources fondamentales, citant indifféremment l’un ou l’autre de ces systèmes juridiques complémentaires lorsque ceux-ci se recoupent ou mettant en exergue leurs divergences lorsqu’ils diffèrent.

The transition from institution- to community-based support for persons with disabilities is a complex process that requires multifaceted efforts.
