#56 HRC Wider Journey Reports

To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the Human Rights Commission have launched their three reports that developed out of the 'Wider Journey' Discussion Document that was released late last year.

With over 40 submissions received in response to this discussion document, the HRC have developed three reports on different aspects of accessibility in New Zealand. These three reports are:

  1. Better Design and Buildings for Everyone: Disabled People's Rights and the Built Environment
  2. Better Information for Everyone: Disabled People's Rights in the Information Age
  3. Political Participation for Everyone: Disabled People's Rights and the Political Process

The full reports and short summaries of each report are available in Word, PDF, Easy Read and NZSL on the Commission's website.

Information in these reports has also informed the Commission's first annual monitoring report on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, being launched tonight.
