Disability intergroup meeting on the EU implementation of the UN CRPD

The European Parliament Disability intergroup met in Strasbourg last Thursday 6 April, to discuss the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) by the EU. This was the follow up to the European Parliament's resolution on this topic in July 2016. During the meeting, Intergroup co-chair Helga Stevens announced that she would be the rapporteur of a new EP report on the follow-up to the mid-term review of the European Disability Strategy. The procedure will include an exchange of views with stakeholders on 12-13 July 2017, and the report will be debated in the EP Committee on employment in August and September.
