The Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The UN International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) defines a disability as a long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairment which may hinder a person’s full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.3 The principle of equality is contained within this definition, seeking to ensure this for persons with a disability of any kind.
