The British Institute of International and Comparative Law presents Exploring the Breadth of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on December 4, 2012.

The CRPD entered into force May, 3 2008, with the purpose to “promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.”

The CRPD recognises the diversity of persons with disabilities and seeks to ensure their human rights in a wide range of challenging situations. Consequently, the CRPD has incredible breadth in its scope of application, making it a vital tool for ensuring the human rights of persons with disabilities at all times.

Three facets of the CRPD will be addressed by this event: its application (1) to persons with mental disabilities; (2) to children with disabilities and its relationship with the Convention on the Rights of the Child; and (3) in emergency situations.
