“Disability Rights and Social Participation: Ensuring a Society for All”
When & Where
25 -28 August 2008
Quebec City Convention Center
Quebec City, Canada
The theme of the Congress is “Disability Rights and Social Participation: Ensuring a Society for All”. This theme is inline with the priorities of Rehabilitation International (RI) while aiming for an international dialogue on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
The reality of disability is not only the problem of a social minority since disability affects almost every person in society at some point in their lives.
The aim of the RI World Congress is to share concrete good practices at the local, regional, national and international levels. Such achievements are founded on partnerships that encompass specific responsibilities assumed by public authorities and society in making significant progress in disability-related areas.
The purpose of the RI World Congress is also to act as a catalyst for concretely implementing human rights for people with disabilities by creating a society that is accessible for all.
