U.N. Committee Claims that Britain is Going Backwards Based on the Reports for the Rights of Disabled

On August 31, 2017, the U. N. Committee said that it is having high concerns and botherations about Britain, especially in terms of rights of the disabled citizen. Their concern is because of cuts in funding, an uncertain post-Brexit future, and limited rights, compared to any other nation in its ten-year long history. The committee has also reviewed the state’s compliance CRPD- Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities eleven years ago in 2006. It had now published a seventeen pages long report consisting of recommendations regarding how Britain can perform better in some way. As per the current condition, “The United Kingdom is going backwards compared to the data that we have gathered and received,” Stig Langyad- who is a committee member, stated in a news conference held in Geneva.

Britain has mentioned that it is very saddened by the report. It quoted that the report did not reflect or support the evidence it offered to the committee. It also failed to recognize the progress that was made. Theresia Degener, the chairwoman of the U.N. committee has defined this situation in Britain precisely as a “human catastrophe.” She added saying that, “they stern measures and steps that they have opted for are affecting more than half a million citizens. Every disable individual is losing amount ranging between 2,000 to 3,000 pounds each year. Many people are deliberately forced into handling work situations without being acknowledged as vulnerable, and all the evidences that were submitted in front of us were simply overwhelming.”

Out of all the concerns, the most acute on was the restrictions imposed on independent living. Langvad stated that, “as per our point of view, an individual having disabilities fails to choose with whom to live, how to live, and where to live.” In addition, Britain also failed to fulfill its assurance of allowing inclusive education. A lot of incidents were reported regarding bullying in schools and increasing number of people with disabilities were already living in poverty.
