The European Disability Strategy sets out the European Commission’s work plan and priorities for the period 2010-20. It will ensure access to EU funding, raise public awareness about disability and fulfil the EU's commitment to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which entered into force for the European Union on 22 January 2011.

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is an important tool for promoting the human rights of people with disabilities. The Convention elaborates and clarifies existing obligations, providing within a single text the accepted global legal standards on disability rights. It recognises that equality, dignity, autonomy, independence, accessibility and inclusion are key to ensuring that people with disabilities are able to enjoy the same human rights across the world. In doing so, it changes the status of people with disabilities in international human rights law.

The seminar will offer participants the opportunity to understand the key principles and concepts contained in the Convention.

It will also analyse the European legislation adopted on disability issues in sectors such as employment, transport and telecommunications.
