Participation of persons with disabilities in decisions regarding
them. New powers and opportunities in national and
international contexts

The UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities,
in article 4 third comma speaks of the inclusion of organizations
representing persons with disabilities in decisions
regarding them. Not only is participation an element of democracy,
hence a human right, but also an important factor of
innovation, especially in the field of disability. In time, in fact,
the increasingly uniform participation of the organizations of
persons with disabilities has become competent and more and
more capable of conversing in all areas of human rights, providing
a different point of view on the condition of persons
with disabilities. The article analyzes a number of examples in
the fields of research, international cooperation, social policies,
and human rights guardianship, emphasizing that in this
field participation translates into innovation.
