22 and 23 October 2014 in Brussels

You can watch the two days conference online: Wednesday 22 October and Thursday 23 October 2014.

The Work Forum brings together representatives of the European Union governance mechanisms of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). These are Focal Points, Coordination Mechanisms and Monitoring Mechanisms from both the Member States and the EU, along with civil society, disabled people's organisations and relevant international bodies.

The Work Forum allows to share experiences on the practical implementation and monitoring of the Convention and to promote solutions to common challenges across the EU. It is organised by the European Commission and meets every year since 2010.

This year, the Work Forum will focus on:

  • The right to equal recognition before the law
  • Access to justice
  • The monitoring frameworks of the Convention


As in previous years, one representative for each of the Art. 33 mechanisms set up in each Member State are invited, namely the focal point, the coordination mechanism and the monitoring mechanism.

Registration for the conference can be made only upon invitation
