Australian Civil Society Shadow and Baseline Report to the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

This Civil Society Shadow Report on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) presents the perspective of people with disability in relation to Australia’s compliance with its obligations under this convention.

The Shadow Report has been compiled from consultations with people with disability and their representative and advocacy organisations, evidence from government and community initiated inquiries and various reports and submissions produced by Civil Society involved in the protection and promotion of human rights for people with disability. The issues raised in this report and gaps highlighted in government compliance with the CRPD should be considered in the context of a nation that is relatively wealthy and where most Australians enjoy a high level of freedom, opportunity to gain a good education, find a good job and where there is respect for individual rights.
