Right to Decide

This is a space to facilitate a local-to-global exchange of experience, knowledge, and ideas for advancing implementation of Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (link to UN Article 12).

Article 12 recognizes the equal right to exercise legal capacity, without discrimination based on disability and the obligation of states parties to ensure access to the supports that may be required for this purpose.

The Right to Decide project is funded by IRIS
in partnership with the Inclusive Design Research Centre, OCAD University.
