Improvement of Disability Data and Statistics: Objectives and Challenges
The document focuses on the objectives of the Convention in relation to the research data and statistics, monitoring and evaluation of the information concerning the situation of persons with disabilities.
Independent Living Manual
A manual is usually a book giving instruct on or information. This manual is written to provide tools for change through information. It does not set out to give instruction, specifically, but to offer examples of routes, histories and
circumstances that have occurred in Europe. It identifies frameworks, ideas, challenges, myths and hope.
The routes for Turkey are dependent on Turkey’s infrastructure, the attitudes of Government, existing legal systems and different stakeholders. These in turn are contextualised within Europe and internationally. But as with elsewhere it is for disabled people and disabled people’s organisations to lead, act and work together for the future they want to see. Change does not come because we wait for it, but because we fight for it. While we have a framework of rights, those rights must have a political will behind them so that they are implemented, monitored, shaped and improved by disabled people themselves. It is up to us to change our lives and convince others to support us in doing so until we achieve full independent living and equality everywhere for all disabled people.

This document presents the overall objective of the event that was to create a platform for presenting and discussing how current human rights indicators and disability data collection efforts at country level can be coordinated and enhanced towards the goal of monitoring the implementation of the CRPD and formulating evidence-informed policies consistent with the human rights mandate.
