of the General Comment on Article 24.
Inclusion Europe has introduced its submission to the Draft General Comment No 4 on Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: The Right to inclusive education.
Inclusion Europe welcomes the development of the General Comment on Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to clarify concepts and support its implementation. Many of our members in 37 European countries have commented on the draft General Comment on the basis of their own national situations. This submission of Inclusion Europe will complement and strengthen their submissions by emphasizing
- the support of the intellectual disability movement for the right to inclusive education for all children and adults;
- the need for specific attention to people with severe intellectual disabilities and complex needs;
- the importance of involving self-advocates, family members, and their organisations in the implementation of Article 24.
