UN Headquarters, New York, NY


Today at UN Headquarters in the General Assembly plenary room, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its Optional Protocol were formally opened for signature, marking the first opportunity for States to become signatures and start the process to become States Parties.

The session began at 10am, and after initial statements by the President of the General Assembly, the Deputy Secretary General, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, countries who had played a leadership role in the Convention negotiations process (Mexico, Ecuador and New Zealand), and a representative of IDA and IDC, the official signing ceremony began.

It was previously predicted that approximately 45 States would sign today, but this number was more than exceeded!  81 States and the European Commission signed the Convention and 43 States signed the Optional Protocol.  All those signing today are considered the "first” to sign.  The UN Office of Legal Affairs noted that this represented the highest number of States ever to sign a human rights treaty on its opening for signature.  Jamaica also deposited its instrument of ratification, making it the first country to become a States Party to the Convention.  The list of those signing today is provided below.

The afternoon session involved a high level dialogue “"From vision to action: the road to implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities."  The dialogue was opened by statements by Ambassador Don MacKay of New Zealand and the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour.  There then followed statements by numerous Member States, a representative of National Human Rights Institutions, as well as DPI Chair Venus Ilagan (speaking on behalf of the IDC).  She noted in her remarks that the “rights-based” approach to disability at the core of the Convention is a basic shift in the way that disability is viewed globally.  She said “we people with disabilities have very high hopes and expectations for the success of the convention in the future.”  (A full copy of the speech is posted on the DPI website, a link to which is at the bottom of this bulletin.)

The ceremony today marked the first opportunity for States to start the process to become States Parties to the Convention.  It is hoped that many more States will sign soon, and that those signing today will follow Jamaica's lead and ratify as soon as possible!
