The Committee invites all relevant stakeholders, including States parties, right-holders under the Convention, principally persons with disabilities through their representative organizations, other civil society organizations, independent monitoring mechanisms, national human rights institutions, and Human Rights Treaty Bodies and Special Procedures mandate holders, to provide written submissions on the draft Guidelines on Deinstitutionalization, including in emergencies by 4 July 2022.
These Guidelines will complement the Committee’s General Comment No. 5 (2017) on article 19 on the right to live independently and be included in the community, and its Guidelines under article 14 on the right to liberty and security of persons with disabilities. They will provide guidance to parties to the Convention, civil society organizations and other stakeholders to support their efforts to implement the right of persons with disabilities to live independently and be included in the community.
