Disability Action's Centre on Human Rights for People with Disabilities.
We work to works to promote and protect the Human Rights of people with disabilities, and to foster a culture of Human Rights for disabled people through education, capacity building, campaigning, lobbying, influencing and legal challenge.
The Manager of the Centre on Human Rights, Colin Harper receives your Disability Research Digest.
I thought you may be interested to know we are now producing a quarterly Disability and Human Rights Ezine.
The Disability and Human Rights Ezine covers local, national and international news which impact on the human rights of people with disabilities. Subscribers will be kept up-to-date on:
-the work of Disability Action's Centre on Human Rights;
-the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD);
-meetings of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities;
-what is being done at local, national and european level to develop the framework necessary to implement the UNCPRD;
-developments in local, national and international which impact on the human rights of people with disabilities;
-opportunities to get involved and have a say in how the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is being implemented in Northern Ireland;
-new research in the area of disability and human rights; and
-campaigns to address human rights violations against people with disabilities around the world.
Perhaps you could mention the ezine in the next issue of the digest? I think it would be of great interest to your subscribers.
