Inclusion Japan’s Testimony on CRPD

By Nagase Osamu

Ms. Kubo Atsuko (4)

On 28 November, Ms. Kubo Atsuko, President of Inclusion Japan, made a testimony at the Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee of the House of Councillors (upper house), strongly supporting the speedy ratification of the CRPD.  Disability rights movement in Japan, including Inclusion Japan, prevented the government from the ratification in March 2009, when the government tried to ratify without significant harmonization.  With the passage of the act on disability elimination in June 2013, prohibiting disability discrimination and mandating reasonable accommodation, the disability community in Japan is now encouraging the parliament and the government to ratify the CRPD within the current extraordinary session of the Diet (parliament) ending on 6 December 2013
