Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on general themes that will require special consideration when the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of December 13th 2006 has to be transposed into domestic law. A transposition is clearly necessary because the rules of the Convention will not only be applied by governments and civil servants; they will also be invoked by individual citizens. The process of implementation should be divided into different phases, such as the initial measures, the first substantial issues, the ratification, the implementation of the national reporting system and the follow-up measures. Other distinctions might be chosen, but if a true picture of the essence of implementation has to be presented, the above mentioned elements cannot be left out.
