The meeting to expand networks for the Disability Rights Tribunal in The Asia โ€“ Pacific.

Disabled Peoplesโ€™ International Asia Pacific (DPI/AP) and the Tokyo Advocacy Law Office (TALO) would like to thank Thammasat University and its staff and volunteer students for their assistance during the Meeting.

DPI/AP and TALO would also like to thank all language and sign language interpreters for their skills in making this meeting accessible to persons of all linguistic backgrounds and impairments.

The law is a powerful tool to ensuring that the rights of people everywhere are protected. This is especially true for persons with disabilities, given that the OHCHR recently announced that persons with disabilities are often the most marginalized of minority groups.
