The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is the newest and most comprehensive UN treaty in existence. It has also proved to be one of the most popular. In record-setting time, it has become legally binding in 177 countries. This seminar brings together a panel of researchers who examine the impact of the CRPD from three distinct perspectives. They explore the conceptual and practical implications of CRPD membership for States Parties, but also broader questions regarding what international law is—and has the potential to be.
