Communicating Disability Rights

What is the role of the media in raising awareness on disability rights and combating stigma towards persons with disability?
How can the Media help in portraying persons with disability in a manner consistent with a human rights approach to disability?
What can be done to enhance the voice of persons with disability in the Media?
The EESC Study Group on Disability Rights is organising a public hearing on "Communicating disability Rights" on 28 June 2019 (9.30-13.00. Meeting room VMA 3), where we will try to give an answer to these questions.

Your participation and input is most welcome!
