Human Rights - International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3, 2015)


On the occasion of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, France calls for the universal ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

We are resolutely committed to promoting the rights and dignity of persons with disabilities, as well as to combatting all forms of discrimination against them.

The minister of foreign affairs and international development launched, in 2009, and renewed, in 2012, a three-year plan in the area of disability, within the framework of a proactive policy to promote diversity and equal opportunities.
