9 June 2016 -The Italian reply to the UN list of issues for UNCRPD was published


On 9 June 2016, the document replying to the list of issues addressed to Italy by the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was published on the website of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. The list of issues had been drafted after the examination of the initial Report of the Italian Government on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (published on the website of the National Observatory on the Condition of Persons with disabilities and sent to the Committee in November 2012).

The response - also available in Braille - was drafted by the  public bodies and administrations participating in the National Observatory on the Condition of Persons with Disabilities, coordinated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy, in close cooperation with the Inter-Ministerial Committee for Human Rights of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation. Both the list of issues and the document were shared with all the members of the Observatory.

The text is published with a view to the debate session scheduled for the upcoming 24 and 25 August, when an Italian Inter-Ministerial delegation will meet the UN Committee for a debate on the list of issues, on the 2012 Report and on any other issue the Members of the Committee may raise during the works.
