The CRPD Committee has published its “Draft guidelines on Deinstitutionalisation, including in Emergencies” and calls for comments on them to be shared by June 30th.

You can find the draft (in English) and how to submit written comments on the CRPD Committee website here. 

The Global Coalition on Deinstitutionalisation (GC-DI) supports the Committee in the preparation of the guidelines.

The GC-DI would like to make sure everyone can take part in the process of the public consultation, including persons with disabilities and their organisations, including people living in institutions and survivors of institutionalisation.

Soon, the draft will be available in other languages, including Spanish and French and an Easy to Read format!


The GC-DI will hold a 1 hour online webinar on June 2nd at 2 pm CET.

During this webinar we will explain:

  • the background of the Draft Guidelines
  • their purpose
  • key points
  • how you can contribute to the public consultation.
