A comparative report requested by the European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs looks at the policies to promote the rights of children with disabilities in 18 EU member states. The study presents an overview of some of the major issues and obstacles faced by children with disabilities and their families as well as a legal analysis of the implementation of the main rights and principles recognised in the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
The study "Member States' Policies for Children with Disabilities" was completed in June 2013 together with eighteen country reports. The European study contains a set of recommendations aimed at improving EU action to enhance the rights of children with disabilities across Europe.
