The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) defends human rights. Governments ratifying the CRPD must respect the human rights of people with disabilities. But how well do ratifying governments follow the CRPD? In response to this question, we need to monitor CRPD implementation. In other words, we need to watch governments to see how well they implement the CRPD. Many people and institutions can help. These include United Nations human rights officers and national human rights institutions. Non-governmental organizations also can help, for example disabled people’s organizations and deaf organizations. This publication explains the CRPD. It also explains how to monitor (watch) the rights of persons with disabilities.

The United Nations published this guide in 2010. But most information watching how governments follow the CRPD is the same today. Meanwhile, the PDF file is accessible for people using screen reading software. For example, it uses bookmarks. But its accessibility has limits. For example, the document does not have tags to tell its natural language.
