Abstract

Universal Design and Human Rights: The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)

This paper provides information about the concept of accessibility and Universal Design underlying the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It outlines the obligations of States that have ratified the Convention (State parties) and summarizes how the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD Committee) advocates promoting and implementing Universal Design. The concluding chapter aims to encourage librarians to refer to and make use of the CRPD to further Universal Design in their professional environments.
