International Disability Law School Focusing on UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities


#1

The 10th International Disability Law Summer School, hosted by NUI Galway’s Centre for Disability Law and Policy (CDLP), will take place from the 18-22 June 2018 in Galway, Ireland. Registration is now open for the biggest disability law Summer School in the world, with a focus on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The core focus this year will be on Intersectionality in the areas of women, older persons and children with disabilities.

The purpose of this 4.5 day school is to equip participants with the insights and skills necessary to translate the generalities of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities into tangible reform for persons with disabilities.

Last year, the school attracted around 230 participants from over 50 different countries – from all over Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America.

No prior legal training or knowledge is necessary to participate in the Summer School. Participant accessibility (physical or communicational) requests and enquiries are welcomed.

A draft programme will be published shortly.
