Equal recognition before the law: the capacity to hold rights and duties and the capacity to act on them.

This Study aims to identify ways and means of implementation of Article 121 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) which affirms the right to equal recognition before the law. It represents a paradigm shift from viewing persons with disabilities as objects of charity and medical treatment to identifying them as subjects with legal rights.

The requirements of Article 12 of the CRPD have been clearly interpreted by the UN CRPD Committee. Various bodies of the Council of Europe have acknowledged this shift in consensus regarding the right to universal legal capacity and have gradually moved towards affirming its applicability, most notably in the Council of Europe Strategy on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2017-2023. To reiterate, the Strategy asserts that the rights covered in it are to be interpreted in light of the UN CRPD.
