European Parliament

EDF and its members have a long and rich history of close cooperation with the European Parliament. Against the backdrop of the economic, social and human rights crisis in recent years, the role of the European Parliament has been key to preserving disability rights in line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD).

Since 1980, there has been a Disability Intergroup in the European Parliament working to promote the rights of persons with disabilities in the work of the European Parliament.
