The name of the public policy is :Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 13, 2006 and signed on behalf of the United States on June 30, 2009 submitted to Senate May 17, 2012.
According to a statement from the United Nations “asserts the rights to education, health, work, adequate living conditions, freedom of movement, freedom from exploitation and equal recognition before the law for persons with disabilities,”.
b) Explain the reasons why you chose this particular policy
I chose this particular policy because this is the first human rights treaty approved by the UN in the 21stcentury & a very important foundation for regarding the privileges of people with disabilities globally.
c) State what kind of public policy it is. Is it a bill introduced in the House or Senate? Is it an existing public law?
Arranged under President George W. Bush and marked by Obama in July 2009, the convention was introduced to the Senate on May 17, 2012.
Obama guaranteed to sign the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and to urge the U.s. Senate to confirm the Convention quickly. The United States has been an authority signatory on the Convention since June 2009. Still, the extent that we can tell, there has been no substantive development on the second some piece of the guarantee aside from inside examinations inside elected organizations.
d) Discuss how you plan to research the policy.
I am planning to check the official Senate website to find out the record of the Convention. I will also look over the President Obama’s speeches and other White House statements. I may plan to get some inputs from William Freeman who is president of the American Disability Association.
Following sources will help in my research plan:
