Unfortunately, persons with disabilities (mostly women and girls) who are placed in institutions are often victims of abuse. To shed light on this issue, Bapu Trust for Research on Mind & Discourse, Parivaar and Human Rights Law Network are organising an event for the launch of a report by our partner Human Rights Watch, entitled  ‘The path to dignity and inclusion: ending abuses against women and girls with psychosocial or intellectual disabilities in institutions in India’. Afterwards a panel discussion will be held to provide more clearance and insights on the topic.

Event take place: Wed, Dec. 3rd 2014, 11.30 am – 01.30 pm

Place: India Habitat Centre, Casuarina conference room, Lodhi Road, New Delhi-110003 (Entry from gate number 3 on Vardhman Marg).
