NEWS: San Marino to Ratify Intl Disability Rights Treaty
The RatifyNow web site reports that the small, Southern European country of San Marino may be ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) as early as today, February 22, 2008. This means that the CRPD would now require only three more countries before it can go into full legal force. Watch the RatifyNow web site for official confirmation of San Marino’s ratification. Read the RatifyNow FAQ to learn more about the process for ratifying the CRPD and what the CRPD means for disabled people around the world.
San Marino, with its population of 29,000 people, is in a small enclave within Italy.
RatifyNow is an organization working to maximize the number of countries that sign, ratify, and implement the CRPD.
