Persons with disabilities are NOT excluded from ....

"the general education system on the basis of disability, and that children with disabilities are not excluded from free and compulsory primary education, or from secondary education, on the basis of disability"
Article 24 CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

European Institutions: Recruitment of temporary agents with disabilities and with expertise in disability rights and non discrimination policies


Amendment n° 862 (pag.244) as approved on 20 October 2010 by the plenary and then adopted in December in the framework of the EP resolution for the budget for the financial year 2011 guarantees 

"Part of the appropriations is to be used for the recruitment of temporary agents with disabilities and with expertise in disability rights and non discrimination policies, implementing the Action Plan 2009-2013 for the promotion of gender equality and diversity in the EP Secretariat adopted by the Bureau (PE413.568)/BUR) in line with the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, art. 26 and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. An annual report will be drawn up on the use of appropriations for this purpose."

The administrations of the European Parliament and the European Commission need to implement this fiscal amendment into concrete action to come into force for fiscal year 2011 otherwise the explicite demand of certain MEPs could be jeopardised.
