Promoting the rights of persons with disabilities: Equality, dignity and equal opportunities.

The Council of Europe promotes, protects and monitors the implementation of human rights for all, including persons with disabilities. Persons with disabilities are entitled to have access to and enjoy, on an equal basis with others, the full range of human rights safeguarded by the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Social Charter, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and other international treaties. The Council of Europe Strategy on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities – Human Rights: A Reality for All – outlines the Organisation’s priorities in the period 2017-2023.

The  overall  goal  of  the  Strategy  is  to  achieve  equality,  dignity  and  equal  opportunities for persons with disabilities in specific areas where the Council of Europe can make an input. This requires ensuring independence, freedom of choice, full and active participation in all areas of life and society.
