HUMAN RIGHTS: HISTORIC RATIFICATION BY THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY

 
27 November 2009 /// The European Community has just ratified the United
Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Unprecedented
step forward for the first human rights treaty ratified in the history of
Europe and a great signal sent to all EU Members States.

 


In thursday’s session of the Council of the European Union, the European
Community ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons
with Disabilities (UN CRPD). This ratification represents a major policy
shift toward enforcing human rights obligations and putting disability on
top of the human rights agenda: this is the first time in the European Union
history that the Community is going to accede to an international human
rights treaty.
