How NHRIs and Parliaments can Protect and Promote Disability Rights
Date: 2 December 2021
Time: 12:00 UTC
This session will bring together the Commonwealth Parliamentarians with Disabilities (CPwD) network and the Commonwealth Forum for National Human Rights Institutions (CFNHRI) to discuss how the rights of the Commonwealth’s citizens with disabilities can be defended and how their representation in democratic institutions can be improved, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. The session will have a particular focus on how these rights can be addressed by the Parliaments of the Commonwealth in the legislation that they pass.
