Do you want to learn about the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), what it means for disabled people in Ireland and how you can take part in the government consultation?
An information webinar presented by the Disabled Persons Coalition (DPO Coalition) is taking place on Wednesday 27th January from 7pm–9pm.
You will get information about:
- The Convention and what it means
- How you can engage in the Government’s consultation on Ireland’s Draft State Report
- The DPO Coalition’s planned Shadow Report
Ireland’s Draft Initial State Report under the UN CRPD was published in December 2020 and is open for consultation until March 3rd 2021. The DPO Coalition is one of four funded Disability Participation and Consultation Network members who will be making a submission on the State’s Draft Report. The DPO Coalition is also developing an independent report that ‘shadows’ the State’s report and presents an alternative view of how the State has met its obligations under the Convention.
The DPO Coalition is an alliance of disabled people and disabled peoples organisations (DPOs) which was established in 2020 to develop and submit a report to the United Nations (UN) on Ireland’s implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
Who should attend?
Disabled people, anyone interested in the UN CRPD and its process, anyone planning to contribute to the Irish Draft Initial State Party Report.
