Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

CRPD Capacity Building and the Research Process: A Methodology for Collaboration

The General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and its associated optional protocol on December 13, 2006. At its opening ceremony on March 30, 2007, over 80 other nations and the European Union signed the CRPD. The Convention entered into force on May 3, 2009. The CRPD negotiations are reputed to have involved the highest level of civil society participation of any human rights treaty. This representation was overwhelmingly that of persons with disability and disabled persons organizations, including representatives from developing countries across Asia, Africa and the Pacific.
