Human Rights Brief Coverage of Disability Rights

Both the Human Rights Brief and www.HRBrief.org regularly cover developments regarding the rights of persons with disabilities and the UNCRPD.

The Human Rights Brief, a student-run publication of the Center, reports on developments in international human rights and humanitarian law, and provides concise legal analysis of cutting-edge human rights issues. Established in 1994, the Brief maintains a strong commitment to supporting human rights practioners and strengthening the community of human rights advocates around the world. Currently, the Brief reaches more than 4,000 subscribers in more than 130 countries. Learn more about the Brief.

In addition to print publication, the Brief's website, www.HRBrief.org, is a one-stop resource for current analysis of human rights news and near real-time coverage of the hearings of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR). Visit www.HRBrief.org to learn more.
