The theme and subthemes of this Conference will be announced later this month. The forthcoming World Report on Disability highlights gaps in knowledge and stresses the need for further research and changes towards disability inclusive policy and practice. This one day international symposium seeks to bring together researchers, policy makers, disability advocates, NGOs and health and rehabilitation professionals to share current research on equity in health care for persons with disabilities and to promote interdisciplinary action in policy relevant research.
Currently the Call for papers and registration is now open. The vision of the meeting is to accelerate global progress toward a healthy and inclusive world through two distinct but complementary pillars: making communities accessible for all and spinal cord injury research for a cure. This inaugural event — timed to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of the legendary Rick Hansen Man In Motion World Tour — presents a unique opportunity to unite international leaders and decision-makers with research and accessibility experts to explore best practices, lessons learned and inspire collaboration on future opportunities.

In the lead up to this session, in which the Committee adopted Concluding Observations on the initial report of Tunisia and also adopted a List of Issues on Spain, the International Disability Alliance IDA held two consultation workshops in Tunisia to discuss the situation of persons with disabilities. The results of this consultation were shared with the Committee at a private meeting held prior to the start of the dialogue between the Committee and Tunisia.
During this session, IDA together with the CERMI, the umbrella group of Spanish organisations of persons with disabilities, also hosted a side-event on the list of issues for Spain to which the majority of Committee members attended. IDA prepared a number of suggested recommendations to be made by States during this session.
States made more than one hundred recommendations on persons with disabilities and a number of countries have indicated that they would consider ratifying the CRPD. Issues discussed included the State of the Union on Disabilities, the UN Convention: from words to deeds, and the crisis: emergency exit. The aim of the study is to learn about the tourism experiences of people who have hearing loss, and what their wants and needs are in the fields of tourism, travel, hospitality, and leisure products and services. People with hearing loss from around the world are invited to participate in an online survey.
Feedback from the survey will be used to inform the tourism industry about the needs of people who are hard-of-hearing or deaf. Empowering women with disabilities in post-conflict peace-building Women with disabilities face unique challenges, offer unique perspectives and clearly have the capacity to make important contributions to the peace-building and reconstruction process.

The key way to ensure that women with disabilities are effectively represented and that their needs and concerns are addressed is to include them in post-conflict peace-building. Groups that have traditionally been excluded, such as women with disabilities, deserve special attention, bringing their varied backgrounds, perspectives and skills to the negotiating table.
