Asia-Pacific, Misc., October 7 2020

The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability has published a report that focuses on articles 5 to 33 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) which substantiate the rights of persons with disabilities and the associated obligations of governments.

One of the country’s top legal minds, Emeritus Professor Ron McCallum, who is blind, has examined the articles of United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to determine how well Australia is doing in improving the lives of its citizens with disability.

In a report to the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability, Prof McCallum has looked at 30 Articles to the UN Convention that affect Australians living with disability.
