Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Draft [2017-04-05] General Comment No. 5 (2017)
Article 19 : Living independently and being included in the community

  • “14. The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has noted significant advancements in the past decade concerning the implementation of article 19. However, the Committee continues to observe a clear gap between the goals and spirit of article 19 and the scope of its implementation. Some of the remaining barriers are the following :
    i. Lack of adequate monitoring mechanisms for ensuring the appropriate implementation of article 19, including the participation of representative organizations of persons with disabilities ;”
  • “III. Obligations of States parties
    42. … this applies to de-institutionalization in all its forms. In this regard, States parties have the immediate obligation to enter into strategic planning in close and respectful consultation with representative organizations of persons with disabilities to replace any institutionalized settings with independent living and community-based services that comply with all general principles of article 3 of the Convention.”
  • “C. Obligation to fulfill
    55. While implementing legislation, policies and programs, States parties must closely consult and actively involve a diverse range of persons with disabilities through their representative organizations on all aspects concerning independent and community living, in particular, when it comes to developing support services and investing resources in support services within the community.”
  • “IV. Relationship with other provisions of the Convention
    69. For the adoption of all plans and strategies as well as for the follow-up and monitoring when implementing the right to independent and community living, decision-makers at all levels must actively involve and consult (art. 4 (3)) a diverse range of persons with disabilities through their representative organizations, including those representing women and children with disabilities.
    75. … All awareness-raising activities should be carried out in close cooperation with persons with disabilities through their representative organizations.”
  • “V. Implementation at the national level
    (f) Ensuring participation of persons with disabilities, through their representative organizations, is pivotal in transforming support services and communities ;
    (l) Monitoring and implementation envisaged under article 19 should be carried out in full consultation and participation of persons with disabilities through their representative organizations.”

COMMITTEE ON THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

Call for comments on the draft General Comment on the right of persons with disabilities to live independently and be included in the community (article 19)

In 2014, the CRPD Committee decided to prepare a draft General Comment on article 19 of the Convention. The Committee considered that it was important to clarify the content of this article given that in its consideration of States parties’ reports, the Committee had identified implementation gaps and, to a certain extent, misconceptions about the right of persons with disabilities to choose their place of residence and where and with whom to live ; the right of persons with disabilities to in-home, residential and community support services ; and the right to community services and facilities available on an equal basis with the general population and which are responsive to the requirements of persons with disabilities.

In order to detail its position and jurisprudence, the Committee has endorsed a Draft General Comment on the right to living independently and be included in the community during its 17th session. It puts the concepts of living independently and being included into the community into the context of international human rights law and clarifies the normative content of this right by defining central concepts, detailing States parties’ obligations and outlining key elements for national implementation.
