The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland commissioned Disability Action’s Centre on Human Rights for People with Disabilities to carry out research to identify key strategic issues/barriers in public policies and programmes to the full implementation in Northern Ireland of the UNCRPD.
The main aim of this research was to identify areas of substantive shortfalls in public policy and programme delivery in Northern Ireland relative to the key requirements of Articles 5-31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) which will influence the implementation of the UNCRPD.
