The Me-CDPD 2018 report, written with the collaboration of the JusGov researcher Filipe Venade, has just been presented
In Portugal, compliance with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is monitored by the National Mechanism for Monitoring the Implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Me-CDPD). This mechanism results from an obligation of the Portuguese State to ensure the protection and promotion of the human rights of persons with disabilities.
This mechanism is composed by representatives of the Assembly of the Republic, the Ombudsman’s Office, civil society organizations and a personality of recognized merit, linked to the academy. JusGov’s researcher Filipe Venade is the Vice-President of the Me-CDPD, in representation of the Portuguese Federation of Deaf Associations.
The Me-CDPD 2018 report was presented on March 26th 2019, under the scope of the second conference organized by the Me-CPDP entitled “Political Participation and Citizenship of Persons with Disabilities”, which took place in the Assembly of the Republic (Sala do Senado).
