Disability Rights Initiative

Posted: Thursday, January 19, 2012

The Open Society Disability Rights Initiative seeks to address discrimination against people with disabilities and promote their inclusion in society by supporting a rights-based approach to disability. Building on the momentum and opportunity created by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), the initiative supports civil society to build networks and mobilize campaigns that advance disability rights through advocacy for ratification and for implementation of this new human rights instrument.
