NDA Annual Conference 2023: Guaranteeing the equal participation of disabled people in political and public life in Ireland (UNCRPD Article 29)

The 2023 Conference focused on issues in relation to accessible voting and the public and political representation of disabled people in Ireland. The event brought together disabled people, public officials and elected representatives to discuss barriers faced by disabled people and proposed solutions. It examined international practices relevant to this theme and presented learning from other countries which could inform potential solutions to address the challenges and barriers faced.
