by Admin EASPD - Thursday, 25 April 2019, 5:38 PM
 


Description

The Council of Europe Disability Action Plan 2006-2015 has come to an end. The present report intends to underline its added value for the European region and to contribute to the new Plan for 2016-2020. The report starts by analysing the impact of the Disability Action Plan 2006-2015 on EASPD’s work at the European level. For each action line, it examines the state of play and explains what our organisation has done in terms of policies, projects and events. Moreover, it defines a new methodology based on the analysis of the current situation and of existing gaps. It also defines three types of actions to be carried out: collection of knowledge and know-how, gathering of models of promising practices and drafting of policy recommendation.
