Subject: Announcement: Conference on Equal Rights and Accessible
Environments: The UN CRPD and EU Disability Law and Policy


Dear Colleagues,


We are delighted to announce an upcoming conference entitled "Equal Rights
and Accessible Environments: The UN CRPD and EU Disability Law and Policy."
This conference will be held at the Faculty of Law, Maastricht University on
Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th April 2014. This conference will be supported by
Maastricht University andthe Marie Curie Programme of the European
Commission and will take place within the framework of the DREAM (Disability
Rights Expanding Accessible Markets) project, which is co-hosted by
Maastricht University.

This unique two day event seeks to explore the potential of the UN CRPD as a
facilitator of substantive change. The first day of the conference will
concentrate on the Convention itself and its advanced provisions. The second
day of the conference will delve into the prospective impact of the UN CRPD
on EU disability law and policy. The focus of the conference as a whole will
be on equal rights and accessibility obligations. This conference seeks to
bring together scholars from the disciplines of both international and EU
law and to ensure constructive dialogue between both groups. Renowned
experts in the relevant fields will be contributing to this conference and
it promises to be a very interesting event. For your convenience, please
find below a link to the conference, where interested participants can
