Chapter Summary

This chapter provides first impressions as to what this implies for the European Community (EC) and, specifically, what legal obligations ratification of the Convention will impose on the Community. In essence, this analysis involves asking, and answering, three sets of questions: What fields does the Convention cover and what kinds of obligations does it impose on States Parties in those fields? In which of those fields does the EC have competence? In those fields in which there is an overlap between the Convention and EC competence, in how far do existing EC instruments meet the required standard? What further initiatives are the EC required to take?.

Keywords: CRPD; European Community (EC); international law
