Publication date: 
27 April 2011
Hungary was the first EU country to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2008. MDAC is advocating for implementation, especially on ensuring that the government establishes an independent body to monitor the implementation. One of the key areas of implementation is legal capacity, and MDAC has engaged in intensive advocacy at governmental level. In September 2010 MDAC and other NGOs submitted a comprehensive shadow report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
