Guidelines on Political Participation of Persons with Intellectual or Psychosocial Disabilities
We developed these guidelines with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
During 2020, we organized regional and national consultations with self-advocates from different countries to collect their views and experiences on political participation.
These consultations aimed to find out the challenges and obstacles that persons with intellectual disabilities face when taking part in the political life.
The participants gave recommendations to Governments and other actors involved in the political life to support people with intellectual disabilities to fully participate and be included as candidates and voters.
