From 18 -22 June 2018, the Centre for Disability Law & Policy (CDLP) will host the 10th International Disability Law Summer School at the National University of Ireland Galway.

The purpose of the 4.5 day school is to equip participants with the insights and skills necessary to translate the generalities of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities into tangible reform for persons with disabilities.  

The core focus this year will be on Intersectionality in the areas of women, older persons and children with disabilities.

The participants include persons with disabilities, their families, civil society groups of persons with disabilities as well as advocates for disability law reform, lawyers, policy makers, policy analysts and others. The faculty includes senior academics, practitioners, advocates and policy makers from around the world. Most of the speakers have been directly and actively engaged in drafting and implementing the Convention. Others are advocates for change and reform with an expertise on intersectionality.

This is the 10th International Disability Law Summer School offered by the CDLP. Last year, the School attracted around 230 participants from over 50 different countries from all over Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America. We believe it is the biggest such event in the world.

It will be held in the home of the CDLP the  Institute for Lifecourse & Society Building at NUI Galway.
