Engaging with the UN beyond the UN CRPD Committee

EUD webinar

On the 23rd of June, EUD organised a webinar during which EUD highlighted that there is a number of UN Treaty Bodies, agencies and funds that EUD members must engage with to ensure the systematic and cross-cutting inclusion of deaf persons throughout the UN human rights protection mechanisms.

For instance, during the webinar EUD emphasised that for the advocates of deaf women rights it is essential to engage with the Committee of the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (UN CEDAW). Deaf women must be meaningfully included in the process of the implementation of the UN CEDAW to ensure that their views and perspectives are visible when advocating for stronger protection against discrimination or protection from gender-based violence. The webinar also encouraged the National Associations of the Deaf across Europe to forge stronger relations with UN entities such as the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations High Commissioners of Refugees (UNHCR).
