Diritti delle persone con disabilità: Convenzione delle Nazioni Unite e ruolo svolto dal Consiglio dei diritti umani


The Human Rights Council is a subsidiary body of the General Assembly of the United Nations, in charge of promoting worldwide the respect and protection of the rights of every man without any discrimination. In 2018 Italy, which had already been member of the Council twice, has been reelected and will be a member until 2021. At the time of its candidacy, Italy presented a document of commitments - entitled "Voluntary pledges and commitments pursuant to General Assembly resolution 60/251" - in which a series of priority themes were listed. Among them, a focus on "the rights of persons with disabilities" was included. Starting from this circumstance, the aim of this paper is to scrutinize the recent action of the Human Rights Council dealing with the rights of persons with disabilities.
