Chapter Summary

On 13 December 2006 the General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (OP-CRPD). OP-CRPD complements CRPD by providing for additional mechanisms to monitor its implementation. This chapter presents a three-tier analysis of the monitoring regime of CRPD: how does it compare to earlier UN treaty monitoring regimes; to what extent does it mirror the themes of UN treaty body reform; and to what extent does it reflect the calls within the Ad Hoc Committee for reform. It discusses international monitoring of the CRPD, cooperation between the CRPD Committee and other competent bodies, and the monitoring procedure. The importance of national monitoring as the glue connecting international monitoring and national implementation is also explained in the chapter.

Keywords: ad hoc committee; monitoring mechanism; OP-CRPD; UN treaty monitoring regimes
