Summer School 2012
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities – How to Use it
June 18th - 23rd, 2012
Aras Moyola, NUI Galway
The Faculty included senior academics, practitioners and policy makers from around the world most of whom have been directly and actively engaged in drafting and implementing the Convention.
This year we were particularly honoured to have our Summer School launched by the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins. President Higgins has great interest in disability issues and has been a tireless campaigner throughout his long political life for the rights and interests of persons with disabilities in Ireland and indeed throughout the world.
