If you are a person with a disability or a representative organisation it is important that you understand the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and recognise when human rights are being violated. Everyone in society has a duty to understand the rights of people with disabilities and to ensure these rights are protected and exercised.
This course will help you to understand the principles of the Convention, appreciate disability concerns and understand the mechanisms and frameworks needed to translate the Convention into practice.
