The Office for Disability Issues has released a policy paper: Disabled people’s rights: information for the UK’s first periodic review.
The review reports on information provided to the United Nations (UN) in connection with its first periodic review of disabled people’s rights.
The government published its initial report on the rights of disabled people in November 2011, as required by the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
As part of its first periodic review of how the United Kingdom (UK) is implementing the convention, the UN asked for more information in April 2017. They did so by publishing a ‘List of issues’.
This response provides the information the UN asked for. The Office for Disability Issues coordinates the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities for the UK.
