The Politics of Participation
The fight for the self-determined participation of people with disabilities has a long history. The development and implementation of the relevant legislation is the result of decades of efforts by activists and non-governmental organizations. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was a milestone in terms of changing attitudes towards people with disabilities receiving the support needed for equality. On this basis, quality of life and inclusion must be further improved to achieve full recognition of rights and universal accessibility in all parts of Europe so that people with disabilities can be active members of society as a matter of course. At the ESCIF Congress 2024, the efforts of European SCI organizations to improve participation will be presented. An active exchange and workshops will provide important stimuli for the further political work of the ESCIF member organisations.
Save the date for the next congress that will be in Berlin from 22nd to 25th May 2024 with the theme of ‘The Politics of Participation’. The agenda and speakers are already shaping up to be a productive, informative and engaging meeting. We hope that you will get it in your diary and begin plans to join us.
There will be an opportunity to visit Berlin as well as the German parliament building.
