As you know the Zero Project tries to capture with its Social Indicators the status of the implementation of the CRPD on a world map – and this would not be possible without the crucial help of disabled people’s organisations from across the world.
The hot-off-the-press book Disability, Rights Monitoring, and Social Change. Building Power out of Evidence explores and challenges the ways in which disability rights are monitored. It underlines that any monitoring of the CRPD has to be inclusive of persons with disabilities themselves – Nothing about us without us! Its chapters address the current theoretical, methodological, and practical issues surrounding disability rights monitoring and offer a detailed look at law and policy reforms, best practices, and holistic methods. Edited by renowned human rights and disability experts: Marcia H. Rioux, leader of our partner Disability Rights Promotion International (DRPI), Paula C. Pinto and Gillian Parekh, it has received very positive critics. Well worth a read!
