Date: 26-27 December 2015
The Consultation was co-organized by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Wuhan University Public Interest and Development Law Institute (PIDLI). It brought together around 30 Chinese experts and practitioners from the academia, organizations of persons with disabilities, law firms, the local disabled persons’ federation (DPF) and other stakeholders. The aim of the Consultation was to initiate a baseline study for assessing the needs and gaps of persons with disabilities to access to justice in China. The discussions focused on the scope, conceptual approach, and methodology of such study (including consideration of analyses and assessment tools by stakeholders).
The Consultation culminated in the publication of the report “Equal Access to Justice for Persons with Disabilities in China” by UNDP on 28 November 2016. The report is accessible here.
