Advocating for inclusive EU policy

We track EU policy and coordinate comprehensive guidance with our members to advocate for disability rights by working closely with EU institutions and agencies including the European Parliamentthe European Commissionthe Council of the EU and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

Supporting disability advocates

We support members in their national level advocacy through amplification of their demands to their governments, skill development and training in formats including workshops, webinars, and toolkits on topics such as EU advocacy and standardization, and assistance on an ad hoc basis.

Contributing to the international disability movement

We are a member of the International Disability Alliance (IDA) and work in partnership with the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC).

We advocate for disability rights at the United Nations (UN) and its bodies through participation to conferences such as the High Level Political Forum and the Work Forum on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
