This Summer School is the first of its type in Europe to focus on anti-discrimination legal issues on the ground of disability and it runs from 4-15th July 2005. It will focus on the potential of the European Union Framework Directive on Employment in the context of disability. The Framework Directive is the single most important legal instrument at the European level combating discrimination on the ground of disability. Its success or failure will be crucial to the cause of advancing the rights of persons with disabilities in Europe.
This Summer School will raise general legal awareness about the practical potential of the Directive in the disability context and should appeal to a wide range of persons and bodies including persons with disabilities, practising lawyers, judges, law students and disability NGOs as well as those more generally interested in public interest litigation. More particularly, the Summer School is designed to impart skills as well as knowledge to enable participants to construct effective test case strategies under the Directive on behalf of persons with disabilities. A prestigious teaching faculty has been assembled to deliver the programme. It is drawn from an international group of prominent legal experts and especially practitioners who have extensive experience in bringing test cases in the field of disability.
