UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with

  • The Convention on the Rights of Persons with
    Disabilities is an international human rights
    instrument of the United Nations intended to
    protect the rights and dignity of persons with
    disabilities. Parties to the Convention are
    required to promote, protect, and ensure the full
    enjoyment of human rights by persons with
    disabilities and ensure that they enjoy full
    equality under the law.
  • The text was adopted by the United Nations
    General Assembly on 13 December 2006 and opened
    for signature on 30 March 2007. Following
    ratification by the 20th party, it came into
    force on 3 May 2008

Self-Determination for people with disabilities
(K. E. Ellingsen, Keynote at the AIEJI World
Congress Copenhagen May 2009)
  • No one doubts that greater personal autonomy,
    self-determination is important.
  • But it is essential to remember that most of us
    have also received support in learning how to
    make choices, what to consider, and to weigh
    alternatives and possible consequences.
  • Persons who have been controlled by others up
    through adult life, and been excluded from
    ordinary life experiences, often simply do not
    know how to make decisions.
