The Commission is evaluating the current strategy and consulting institutions, stakeholders and the general public to build up a new comprehensive Strategy that ensures the protection of the rights of persons with disabilities by better implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The Committee on Petitions plays an important protection role in the EU framework for the implementation of the UN CPRD, as it receives petitions from citizens, discusses them and engages in discussions with other institutions and Member States so to find a solution. Thanks to this role of protection of citizens' rights, it is in a privileged position to discuss and make concrete proposals for the new Strategy, which is the aim of the 2020 Workshop.
