Disability Rights Expanding Accessible Markets

Objective

The purpose of the proposed ITN is to explore options for EU disability law and policy reform in light of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2007). In particular, it will focus on the core rights of the individual, on expanding markets for European ICT business by making it more accessible to consumers with disabilities and on the need to find ways to embed a positive dynamic of reform throughout Europe.
