CRPD Committee 2016 elections - candidates’ responses to IDA questionnaire

The 9th Conference of States Parties (COP) to the CRPD will be held on 14-16 June 2016 during which the elections will take place for nine of the eighteen seats of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

For the past elections, IDA disseminated a questionnaire to the CRPD Committee candidates in an effort to find out more about their experience and expertise in the field of disability rights. Their replies were posted online in order to assist States Parties to make informed votes at the elections based on the quality of the candidates. Feedback to the questionnaire was quite positive- for the 2014 elections it was answered by about three quarters of the candidates, including seven candidates who were eventually elected as members of the Committee.
