Disability rights

Physical or mental disability can mean serious difficulties in relation to employment, education, and other services.  Mobility and transport issues, and access to electronic and other media, may also create daily obstacles.  In this guide we outline the main sources of rights which you may have, and how to secure justice if they are denied.

Scope of this guide

If you suffer from a physical or mental disability, the laws of your country may give you rights to be treated equally with everyone else where you live, so that you can enjoy all the human rights available to others.  In this guide we cover the following issues:

  • an overview of the status of persons with disability
  • what are your rights to equal treatment?
  • who can enforce rights to equal treatment of persons with disability?
  • against whom may rights to equal treatment be enforced?
  • if you have to go to court to have your rights to equal treatment upheld, where should you do this?
  • if you start a court action, what procedure will you need to follow?
  • are there alternatives to court action?
