In 2019, EDF produced a Guidance Note on the Role of European DPOs in International Cooperation. This is part of a global advocacy effort to ensure international cooperation becomes fully inclusive and accessible, with the meaningful involvement of persons with disabilities and their representative organisations, as laid out in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Guidance Note is the result of a process, including a workshop in Brussels and good practice examples.

Want to know more? Come to our launch event, share a glass of wine and hear more about the role of organisations of persons with disabilities in international cooperation.


Moderated by Mette Müller Kristensen (International Director, Disabled Peoples Organisations Denmark)
