[Draft] Supporting People with Disabilities

Postby Free Las Pinas » Mon Aug 17, 2020 11:48 pm

Supporting People with Disabilities
Category: Civil Rights | Strength: Significant


The World Assembly,

Noting the importance of accessible infrastructure - particularly in the spheres of health, education, and communications - in allowing people with disabilities to effectively exercise their rights;

Concerned that, in addition to ableism, many people with disabilities regularly face discrimination and disadvantage on other grounds (such as race, sex, age, and - for most - low income); and

Recognising that - while legislation alone cannot serve to completely eradicate discrimination - an internationally recognized disability code to remedy the social disadvantages of people with disabilities and promote their equal participation in all spheres of life would be of at least some benefit in achieving that goal, hereby:

  1. Requires member states to:
    1. Amend or annul national laws, and condemn or criminalize norms and procedures, which empower discrimination on the grounds of disability;
    2. Ensure that all people with disabilities within their jurisdiction can have easy and affordable access to assistive technologies, housing programs, and mental health support services;
    3. Ensure, in law and in practice, that no qualified applicants and employees for any job are subjected to different terms and conditions, privileges, incentives, or allowances in their occupation due to being disabled;
    4. Guarantee, to all people with disabilities, the right to know whatever meticulous details pertaining to their disability that their health care provider does, and ensure that health care providers explain their patient's medical condition to the best of their ability;
    5. Establish an adequate system of special education for those with visual or hearing impairments or those who have intellectual disabilities; and
    6. Provide appropriate financial assistance to all economically-marginalized students with disabilities who genuinely seek to pursue tertiary education;
  2. Encourages member states to:
    1. Promote universal social awareness and acceptance of people with disabilities across the population; and
    2. Utilize and conduct research to allow products and facilities to be used by anyone without the need for significant reworks and modifications;
  3. Affirms that a person with a disability is one who has been declared so and whose disabilities have been determined by a health care provider.

Draft 9 was submitted 28 November 2020, and reached 76 approvals of the 63 required on 30 November 2020, when it was pulled, due to major flaws that were missed.

Rights of People with Disabilities
Category: Civil Rights | Strength: Significant



The World Assembly,

Noting that disabilities are mental or physical abnormalities that restrict a person's movements or senses and are caused by genetics, harmful environments, individual lifestyles, or other unknown causes,

Believing that all people should be guaranteed equal benefit and protection to the law and be free of discrimination,

Recognizing the fact that the majority of persons with disabilities live in poverty, which makes it critical to address the negative impact poverty has persons with disabilities,

Fully aware the importance of accessibility to the social environment, to health and education, and to information and communication, which would enable persons with disabilities to enjoy their human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Concerned about the challenging conditions faced by persons with disabilities who are subject to several forms of discrimination on the basis of disability and race, color, sex, religion, age, or other status,

Seeking to create a comprehensive international convention to remedy the social disadvantages of persons with disabilities and promote their participation in civil, political, economic, social and cultural spheres with equal opportunities,

Defines "universally designed" as the design of products to be usable by anyone without needing certain adaptations, requirements, or specialized design.

Desirous of reaching a fair compromise regarding the issue, requires that all member nations of the World Assembly:

(1) Take all appropriate measures to modify existing regulations, customs, or practices that constitute discrimination against persons with disabilities;

(2) Take all appropriate measures to eliminate all forms of discrimination on the basis of disability;

(3) Undertake research on universally designed products and infrastructure, which meet the needs of of any persons with disabilities and implement them to the furthest reasonable extent;

(4) Recognize that all persons with disabilities, granted this has been declared by a medically certified individual, are entitled to meticulous details and information pertaining to their condition;

(5) Ensure that all persons with disabilities have access to assistive technologies, housing programs, and service or emotional support services.

Operative and preamble clauses are muddled up. I suggest all non binding clauses to be put in front, then add all your important clauses.

Thanks, I've updated the OP. However, I've edited on a tired state of mind, so the adequate edits may not have been made.

2: Do you have Graintfjall's (aka Gruenberger Overseas Affiliate Territory) permission to use that last prefatory clause?

1. Thanks, I think I fixed it now.
2. I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that I was duplicating a clause. I'll send them a TG asking permission then.
Edit: They've said yes!
3. It's supposed to address the issue of employment for people with disabilities. Do you think it should be revised or deleted?

Recognising that - while legislation alone cannot serve to completely eradicate discrimination - a comprehensive international convention to remedy the social disadvantages of people with disabilities and promote their equal participation in all spheres of life would be of at least some benefit in achieving that goal:

  1. Requires member states to:
    1. take all appropriate measures to eliminate all forms of discrimination on the basis of disability, including by modifying existing regulations, customs, or practices which constitute discrimination against people with disabilities;
    2. ensure that all people with disabilities within their jurisdiction can easily access assistive technologies, housing programs, and mental health support services;
    3. provide, in law and in practice, that no qualified applicant for any job is to be subjected to different terms and condtions, privileges, incentives, or allowances in their employment due to their disability status;
    4. guarantee, to all people with disabilities, the right to receive meticulous details and information pertaining to their respective conditions;
    5. establish an adequate and well-integrated system of special education for those with visual or hearing impairments or those who have intellectual disabilities; and
    6. provide appropriate financial assistance to all economically-marginalized students with disabilities who genuinely seek to pursue tertiary education;
  2. Encourages member states to effectively undertake and implement research into products (including infrastructure) that can be used by anybody, without the need for special adaptations; and
  3. Affirms that a person with a disability is one who has been declared so by a medically certified individual.

After taking a good look, sure, I'll add your re-draft. Thanks!

Clause 1c to me reads as if even if you’re disability makes you unable to do your job, you can’t be fired because of that. So if there was a factory worker who suffered a car accident and became a vegetable, they can collect wages forever. I think this could be fixed. (I could be wrong though.)

How’s this:

Clause 1c states that a qualified PWD should be subject to the same terms as a qualified able-bodied person. If it’s too unclear for others, I’ll try to revise it soon.

"Indeed it is." Mr Hepperle muses. "We recommend the authoring delegation to indicate that the category and strength for their proposal is Civil Rights | Significant in the original post, for convenience purposes."

Minor suggestion primarily for aestethic reasons =p: in Article 1d, remove "the meticulous [...]" and replace with "whatever meticulous [...]"

Somewhat less minor, but still not very important, suggestion: In Article 1a, replace "modifying" with "modifying or annulling".

Rule 1a

Postby Fre Cruth » Thu Aug 27, 2020 4:07 pm

Overall this is worded well and presents a great resolution to helping better the lives of persons with disabilities and allows for more access on their part. The only thing I would do is try to specify a bit more on rule 1a. This rule is very important but as it is worded at this current moment could lead to a various amount of loop holes. It states that for instance buildings should be more accessible but does not state in what way allowing for building owners to possibly work around this rule act. I would try to allow for some leeway/grey area but also specifically state how some things should change.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand. Clause 1a states that we must take action against discrimination on the basis of disability by putting an end to or regulating certain practices and laws that constitute discrimination. If you're talking about the first preambulatory clause, I don't think it needs that sort of revision, since it's not meant to be stating certain obligations/requirements. Instead, it states the importance of inclusive infrastructure in the spheres of health, education, and communications. Please tell me if I'm just not understanding what you're trying to help me with.

Edit: I'll be taking out the struck-out text in 1e, since somebody else plans to post an in-depth resolution pertaining to it, and I wouldn't want to vitiate the resolution and the author's intentions.

OP quote edited by myself for brevity. Who is this "somebody else" and how were you made aware of their innovation?

Schools for the deaf are covered by GA#493 as well. That is an entire resolution; between that and your strucken-out text, is one clause in a broader resolution about disability sufficient/necessary RE schools for the blind?

Before I answer that, what's "RE"? I'm not familiar with that termination.

Alright, so I haven't thought about that, I just went ahead and removed it. But now that I am thinking about it, I don't believe my one clause necessarily negates an entire resolution, but I don't see the harm in removing it if somebody else plans to submit soon.
