UN Convention: Guidance on use of Human Rights Monitoring

Posted 01/8-10 at 06.28

The International Disability Alliance (IDA) has produced a document entitled, Effective Use of International Human Rights Monitoring Mechanisms to Protect the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The objective of this guidance document is to provide practical, hands-on strategies and advice to DPOs on international human rights mechanisms. It focuses on the reporting process of the CRPD in order to provide practical information for DPOs on both the process and the content of reporting.

After a substantial sections on the Convention and the reporting process, each Article is reviewed in detail. Lists of questions are provided linked to individual articles so that DPOs can closely monitor whether rights are being enforced.

This document offers DPOs an excellent resource for making sure the CRPD delivers meaningful change for disabled people.
