In 2018, USICD published two White Papers. Our International Development: Disability Policy & Practice study reviewed and assessed disability inclusion in the policies of selected bilateral and multilateral agencies. We conducted a thorough review of agency policies, frameworks and strategic plans and place them on our website to facilitate access by civil society.
Our Stakeholders’ Understanding and Monitoring of the Implementation of CRPD Article 32 was a study to assess how Article 32 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is being reported upon in official State Party reports and alternative reports submitted by civil society and Independent Monitoring Mechanisms (IMMs).
The CRPD Article 32 course was produced to implement the training recommendations from both studies. Our objective is to improve stakeholders’ understanding of Article 32 and inclusive international cooperation and to ensure that all individuals, including those with disabilities, can actively participate and benefit from donor supported international development and humanitarian aid projects.
Our next course focused on the CRPD for US advocates is coming in 2024!
