„To ensure that persons with disabilities are treated in the same way as other people, the Member States of the United Nations developed the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The Convention entered into force (e.g. became international law) on 3 May 2008. The Convention protects and promotes the human rights of all persons with disabilities.
The rights in this Convention are not new rights (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international human rights treaties). The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities reaffirms these rights for people who live with a disability and spells out what actions governments must take to realize their rights.“

The purpose of the Convention is to promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.
