In line with the motto of this year’s UN Human Rights Day, “Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All”, the European Union Delegation to Singapore will present its annual Human Rights Day Seminar, focusing on the rights of persons with disabilities.

One billion people worldwide have some form of disability. Many of them feel excluded and say they lack opportunities to contribute to society. While some progress has been made, much remains to be done.

How can inclusivity and accessibility be improved? Governments are pursuing strategies for greater equality. Civil society organisations are advocating for social change. Start-ups are designing tech solutions to some of the daily challenges faced by persons with disabilities. Success depends on the involvement of persons with disabilities at all stages.
