EASPD Booklet: The Service Providers' Role as Human Rights Enablers in Times of Crisis

by Veneta Kuyova - Monday, 8 January 2018, 1:58 PM
 

Description 

This booklet starts with a comparative analysis of the UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (EDS). The comparision shows that whilst the role of social and health services for disabled persons is clearly stated in the UNCRPD, while is less clear in the EDS. The second chapter of this booklet, “Inclusion is the solution, not the enemy, EASPD Survey on the impact of the crisis on the disability sector”, is the result of a survey on the impact of the financial and economic crisis on the disability sector.

EASPD Deklaration zur Beschäftigung

by Veneta Kuyova - Monday, 8 January 2018, 1:59 PM
 

Description 

Das Grundrecht von Menschen mit Behinderungen auf Arbeit auf gleicher Grundlage wie andere Menschen ist in Artikel 27 des Übereinkommens über die Rechte von Menschen mit Behinderungen der Vereinten Nationen (UN-Behindertenrechtskonvention, UN-BRK) klar definiert. EASPD setzt sich für die Verwirklichung dieser Rechte ein, ist sich aber auch der erheblichen Herausforderungen bewusst, die ihre Umsetzung erschweren. Menschen mit Behinderungen sind auf dem Arbeitsmarkt aufgrund gesellschaftlicher Barrieren strukturell benachteiligt. Ihre Erwerbsbeteiligung ist erheblich geringer als die von Menschen ohne Behinderungen, und diese Situation hat sich in den letzten 15 Jahren nicht verbessert. Der anhaltenden Unterbeschäftigung von Menschen mit Behinderungen muss mit sofortigen Maßnahmen begegnet werden, um diese Ausgrenzung vom Arbeitsmarkt zu beenden. Dabei sind positive unterstützende Maßnahmen entscheidend, um das vorhandene Erwerbspotenzial zu erschließen und die Aufmerksamkeit von der Behinderung auf Fähigkeiten und Kompetenzen zu richten.
