RESOURCE: Disability Rights and Policies

Posted on 21 August 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Cross-Disability, Human Rights, Inclusion, Poverty, Resources | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Handicap International has released a new CD on “Disability Rights and Policies.” Each of the 8 major sections of this CD offers an extensive range of reference documents and resources, in both English and French, related to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and to international development. The CD is targeted at organizations at all levels from local to international, and across many sectors including development, emergency relief, and human rights. It is meant to be used as a reference tool for any organization that supports inclusive development, including disabled people’s organizations (DPOs), public authorities, and service providers.

Many of the publications and web sites offered in this free, on-line CD, with some exceptions, are unfamiliar to me. In other words, many haven’t yet been featured at We Can Do. Some seem to be valuable enough to deserve individual blog posts to themselves in the future, though I know I’ll never get to them all. Instead, I encourage We Can Do readers to browse the “Disability Rights and Policies” CD for themselves.

The content of the CD is grouped into 8 different thematic areas:

The CD can be downloaded from the following website:
http://handicap-international.fr/bibliographie-handicap/

It is available in both English and French.

The CD also can be requested from Handicap International (info@handicap-international.us).



Thank you to Handicap International for alerting me to this resource.
