Report says EU is fully committed to protecting people with disabilities

The European Commission published its first report on how the EU is giving effect to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

This Convention is the first international legally binding instrument that sets minimum standards for a range of civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights for people with disabilities around the world. The publication of this report coincides with the launch of the 5th Access City Award competition – an annual prize that recognises cities for their efforts to make it easier for disabled people to gain access to public areas. For more details on the report, you can access the press release on the European Commission website.
