Posted on 6 October 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Events and Conferences, Opportunities | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Rehabilitation International (RI) will be holding its 21st World Congress next year, August 25 to 28, 2008, in Quebec City, Canada.  More details are available in English, French, or Spanish at the conference web site.  Conference organizers are accepting submissions of abstracts through October 31, 2007.

The following text is taken from RI’s conference web site:

Disability Rights and Social Participation: Ensuring a Society for All

The international community is facing a unique opportunity to drastically improve the living conditions of hundreds of millions of people with disabilities by implementing the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty provides the framework for the development of good policies, actions and projects which can have a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities all over the world. People with disability, their family and friends, human rights advocates, experts, government representatives, service providers and civil society leaders from all over the world will gather in Quebec City, Canada from August 25-28, 2008, for the 21st RI World Congress to discuss key disability issues and build partnerships. The event will take place at the Quebec City Convention Center.

The theme of the Congress “Disability Rights and Social Participation: Ensuring a Society for All” is in accordance with RI priorities as well as Canadian and Québec social policy objectives in the field of disability.

The reality of disability is not only the problem of a social minority since disability affects almost every person in society at some point in their lives.

Goals

The aim of the RI World Congress is to share concrete good practices at the local, regional, national and international levels. Such achievements are founded on partnerships that encompass specific responsibilities assumed by public authorities and society in making significant progress in disability-related areas.

The purpose of the RI World Congress is also to act as a catalyst for concretely implementing human rights for people with disabilities by creating a society that is accessible for all.

Thank you for your good vision and mision and goals which stimulete community and other stake holders to rehabilitate the rights of people with disability through lively hood.my comment are to think about non state acters who directly live with people with disabilities,how to accommodate the sign language for each people in usage and access for the people with virsually impairment in development country .

please submit the details regarding conference

Good effort. I believe economic well being is essential for a disabled in his process of “Active Rehabilitation”. Livelihood options should match with the nature of the disability and on the surface most of the disability supportive organizations ready to do that. But most of them are fail in finding correct target market for the products and services providing by the disabled. I would like to suggest you to consider having input session on “How we should assist the disabled for market penetration” in your valuable conference. Further would like to get details on the conference.

Iwould like to participate in your conference ,because I’m interesting in youth problem .and want to discuss it in yourconference .
