Advancing Rights of Disabled Detainees

The goal of this campaign is to advocate for the application of the Iraqi constitution when it comes to protecting the rights of people with disabilities. The campaign will include outreach and training to prison authorities to enable them to meet their obligations under Iraqi and international law. The campaigners have formed a team with the Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights in order to pursue the implementation of better practice. The campaign will also advocate that decision-makers close gaps in the law where they exist, and to support the building of facilities that can better meet the needs of disabled detainees.
