Am 26. Oktober 2008 ist in Österreich die UN-Konvention über die Rechte von Menschen mit Behinderungen in Kraft getreten. Zur Umsetzung dieser Konvention hat das Sozialministerium in Zusammenarbeit mit allen anderen Bundesministerien den Nationalen Aktionsplan Behinderung 2010-2020 (NAP Behinderung) erstellt. Erstmals nach dem Behindertenkonzept der Österreichischen Bundesregierung vom Dezember 1992, das mittlerweile in vielen Bereichen umgesetzt worden ist, liegt mit dem NAP nunmehr wieder eine umfassende Strategie der österreichischen Behindertenpolitik auf Bundesebene vor.

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities came into force in Austria on 26 October 2008. In order to implement this Convention, the Ministry of Social Affairs has drawn up the National Action Plan on Disability 2012-2020 (NAP on Disability) in cooperation with all other federal ministries. For the first time since the Disability Concept of the Austrian government of December 1992, which in the meantime has been implemented in many fields, there is now once again a comprehensive strategy for Austrian disability policy in the form of the NAP.
