6th International Disability Law Summer School: The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities - Access to Justice and Political Participation
16 - 20 June 2014, Aras Moyola, NUI Galway
The purpose of this five-day International Disability Summer School is to equip participants with the insights and skills necessary to translate the generalities of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities into tangible reform for persons with disabilities.
The core focus is on Access to Justice and Political Participation.
The participants will include persons with disabilities, their families, civil society groups of persons with disabilities as well as advocates for disability law reform, lawyers, policy makers, policy analysts and others.
The faculty includes senior academics, practitioners, advocates and policy makers from around the world. Most of the speakers have been directly and actively engaged in drafting and implementing the Convention. Others are advocates for change and reform.
This is the 6th International Summer School on disability law & policy offered by the Centre for Disability Law & Policy. In 2013, the Summer School attracted over 100 participants from 39 different countries.
Registration is now open.
