Watch this COSP15 Side Event: Remedy and Reparation for Institutionalization

The 15th Conference of State Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (COSP CRPD) was held in New York at UN headquarters on 14th-16th June. My blog today highlights an excellent COSP15 Side Event on Remedy and Reparation for Institutionalization, moderated by colleague and friend Tina Minkowitz, who is President of the Center for the Human Rights of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry.

My focus and activism will continue to be on human rights and disability rights for people with dementia, which therefore includes deinstitutionalisation and desegregation, as well as reparations for abuse, violence and neglect of people with dementia in care.

In case you missed the COSP15, or this Side Event, now is your chance to hear this discussion about demands that have been rising in this movement and which are very timely because of the CRPD Committee’s work on Deinstitutionalization Guidelines.
