Commissions, Conventions and Events


United Nations Disability Rights Convention
In December 2001, Mexico, with the support of lobbying groups, initiated a UN General Assembly resolution to establish an Ad Hoc Committee to develop a proposal for an international convention on the rights of people with disability. The Committee entitled the "Ad Hoc Committee on a Comprehensive and Integral International Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Rights and Dignity of Persons with Disabilities" is open to all Member States and observers to the United Nations. 
On this page you will find GAA reports on the Committee's fifth session as well as documents relating to the situation of elderly with disabilities world wide.
