The Centre for Disability Law and Policy at NUI Galway will hold its fourth International Summer School from June 18th to June 23rd inclusive. The School will be co-hosted by the Harvard Law School Project on Disability.
The purpose of this six-day Summer School is to equip participants with the insights and skills necessary to translate the generalities of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities into tangible reform for persons with disabilities.
The teaching faculty for the event includes senior academics, practitioners and policy makers from around the world who have been directly and actively engaged in drafting and implementing the Convention. The participants will similarly be from around the world and will bring great diversity to the debate; including persons with disabilities, their families, civil society groups of persons with disabilities as well as advocates for disability law reform, lawyers, policy makers and policy analysts and others.
