Swiss Coalition for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in International Cooperation (SDIC) 5 years UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Switzerland and its impact on Switzerland’s international cooperation: On 15 April 2014, Switzerland ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which entered into force a month later. By ratifying the Convention, Switzerland committed itself to its full implementation. According to Article 11 and Article 32 CRPD, this also applies to humanitarian aid and international development cooperation. Where do Swiss actors stand today in their implementation of these two articles? What are the challenges? How can and how must Switzerland contribute to disability-inclusive development (DID) in international cooperation? The fifth anniversary of the CRPD ratification is a good time to take stock and discuss how to move towards the full implementation of these two articles.
