“Nothing about disabled people without disabled people”

“Today in Istanbul, Civil Society Representatives from the EU, the Balkans and Turkey are meeting to exchange best practices and discuss how to work better together to strengthen capacity of the organisations representing people with disabilities to protect their rights, including by monitoring the implementation of the UN Convention on the rights of persons with Disabilities. The meeting is organised by the People to People Programme of the European Union in cooperation with the European Disability Forum, the only European Platform run by persons with Disabilities and their families.  Mr. Wolfgang Schlaeger, representing the EU Delegation to Turkey at the event, said in his opening remarks: ” The EU will continue to work together with persons with disabilities themselves to ensure the inclusion of people with disability into society, because this is not only a matter of fundamental rights, but also an indispensable element of a genuine democracy.” photo3 photo2 photo4     For more information on the EU Pe ople to People (P2P) programme: http://www.avrupa.info.tr/eu-and-civil-society/people-to-people-p2p-programme.html http://ec.europa.eu/enlargement/taiex/p2p/index_en.htm
