Brexit and the UNCRPD

Brexit and human rights

Brexit does not affect the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

The UNCRPD restates and clarifies the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in relation to disabled people.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states the rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled.

The UK is bound, under international law, by the Convention but breaches of rights are often the subject of argument between the UN and the UK.

For more information on the UNCRPD see the Equality and Human Rights Commission Guide on our website.
