Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (COSP15)

COSP is an annual meeting at the UN where signatories to the CRPD discuss the human rights treaty, covering a range of themes and issues in round tables, interactive dialogues and side events. This year, the COSP15 themes are:

  • Overarching theme: Building disability-inclusive and participatory societies in the COVID context and beyond
  • Sub-theme 1: Innovation and technology advancing disability rights
  • Sub-theme 2: Economic empowerment and entrepreneurship of persons with disabilities
  • Sub-theme 3: Participation of persons with disabilities in climate action, disaster risk reduction and
  • resilience against natural disasters

After transitioning online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, COSP15 will again return to an in-person format, with all live-streamed meetings.
