The next step in the formulation of “a comprehensive and integral
international convention to promote and protect the rights of persons with
disabilities” will take place at United Nations Headquarters in New York
from 29 July-9 August 2002 when an intergovernmental Ad Hoc Committee meets
to work on the text.
There is already a separate forum for comment on the text
I would strongly encourage people to make representations on the draft.
For those who do not wish to join the other discussion group, I would be
happy to forward your comments on if you send them to me.
