LIV recommends new disability human rights framework

LIV recommends new disability human rights framework

By LIV Policy Sections


The LIV has made a formal submission to the Royal Commission into Disability.

This cross-sectional submission includes input from LIV members of the Disability, Elder, Health, Criminal, Workplace Relations, and Administrative and Human Rights Law Sections. It provides a journey map of how individuals with a disability experience navigating the legal and justice system. Through these case studies it is hoped the LIV’s submission will shed light on previously unheard experiences of people with a disability.

Whilst the submission makes several specific recommendations in different areas of the law such as mental health, workplace relations, aged care, and criminal law, it's overarching recommendation is that the Commission recommend a new disability human rights framework, that fully incorporates the International Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (CRPD) into domestic law.
