Accessibility Law for Persons with Disabilities in Asia(2016_2_40_009)


Disability issues are a critical part of poverty reduction, and in developing countries, securing accessibility for persons with disabilities is essential for realizing employment and education. This study will use the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as the criteria and outline the actual situation of barriers that persons with disabilities in Asia face regarding access to facilities, transportation, information and services. It will also describe the legal developments taken to eliminate these barriers and indicate the remaining problems.
