5th International Disability Law Summer School 2013
Monday, 17 June 2013
The largest and best attended Summer School on international disability law will again bring together leading international activists, policy-influencers and others connected with the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The summer school will run from 17 June to 22 June in Aras Moyola, NUI Galway. The theme this year will be VOICE (restoring full legal capacity) and CHOICE (achieving community living in accordance with the wishes and preferences of the person).
No prior knowledge of the convention or law is required. The programme will have many practical exercises to get participants thinking about the meaning of the convention and its practical relevance. The teaching faculty is drawn from around the world and includes many involved in drafting the convention. Participants usually come from over 20 countries including Africa and Asia, which is a learning opportunity in itself.
This event is open to all and especially those interested in strategies to give power back to people with disabilities over their own lives.
