Global Report on the Right to Decide

 

Inclusion International Global Report on the Right to Decide

Last month, Inclusion International released “Independent But Not Alone: A Global Report on the Right to Decide.” According to the press release presented by Inclusion International, the report details “the perspectives of people with intellectual disabilities and our families on the right to decide.”

Inclusion International’s Global Campaign on the Right to Decide, established two years ago, has served as a platform for individuals to participate in the discussion for advocating policy changes and raising awareness of issues affecting the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. 

The lengthy report elaborates on a number of different topics concerning inclusion, Article  12, the Right to Decide, among other topics. Most importantly, it stresses that the term “independence” is not synonymous with “alone.” The report also recognizes the need to have community inclusion and its role with The Right to Decide.
