8/14に電子版にて8/24(木)のThe Japan Timesが支援する朝英語の会梅田@スタートアップカフェ大阪のテーマが発表されました。紙版では8/15(火)発売分です。障がい者が普通教育を受ける権利についての議論。最近話題の発達障害にも関連がありそうなトピックです。


国連が2006年に提唱した条約The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities(CPRD)によると現在までに160ヵ国がThe Convention(条約)に署名し、92ヵ国がオプショナルの議定書-The Protocolに署名しています。少し長いですが、以下国連がこの条約への批准を各国に求めた理由と目的を引用します。

The Convention follows decades of work by the United Nations to change attitudes and approaches to persons with disabilities. It takes to a new height the movement from viewing persons with disabilities as “objects” of charity, medical treatment and social protection towards viewing persons with disabilities as “subjects” with rights, who are capable of claiming those rights and making decisions for their lives based on their free and informed consent as well as being active members of society.

The Convention is intended as a human rights instrument with an explicit, social development dimension. It adopts a broad categorization of persons with disabilities and reaffirms that all persons with all types of disabilities must enjoy all human rights and fundamental freedoms. It clarifies and qualifies how all categories of rights apply to persons with disabilities and identifies areas where adaptations have to be made for persons with disabilities to effectively exercise their rights and areas where their rights have been violated, and where protection of rights must be reinforced.
