The overall objective of this course is to allow a better understanding of the human rights-based approach to disability and to enable participants to identify gaps between existing policy and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, in order to implement it coherently.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the guiding principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities;
  • Describe the concept of discrimination on the basis of disability as enshrined in the CRPD;
  • Describe the concept of inclusive development as enshrined in the CRPD
  • Describe some of the cross-cutting rights contained in the CRPD;
  • Identify policy built under previous approaches to disability that are not in line with the human rights-based approach to disability; 
  • Identify gaps in legislation with regard to the CRPD.

Module 1: What is (and what is not) disability?
