The ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) convened the 2018 Dialogue to mainstream the rights of persons with disabilities in the ASEAN Community from 3 to 5 December 2018. This is the fourth annual Dialogue conducted with a view to fostering the realisation of the rights of persons with disabilities in all Community pillars of ASEAN.
Focusing on the theme “Accessibility through Universal Design”, the Dialogue gathered participants from ASEAN Sectoral Bodies, government officials, organisations of persons with disabilities, national human rights institutions and experts on disability rights and saw exchange of views and sharing of experiences in the application of universal design as key to achieve accessibility in various spheres beyond physical environment, including in financial services, access to justice and access to information.
