Description

Regeringen presenterar en strategi för genomförande av funktionshinderspolitiken i Sverige under 2011–2016. Syftet med strategin är att presentera politikens inriktning, med konkreta mål för samhällets insatser samt hur resultaten ska följas upp under de kommande fem åren. En viktig utgångspunkt är de mänskliga rättigheter som slås fast i bland annat efterlevnaden av FN:s konvention om rättigheter för personer med funktionsnedsättning och konventionen för barnets rättigheter. Inriktningen på arbetet ska vara att undanröja hinder för tillgänglighet och delaktighet i vardagen. Insatserna bör bli mer systematiska, konkreta och mätbara. Genom ett uppföljningssystem ska kunskaperna öka kring effekterna av såväl de åtgärder som vidtas i strategin som levnadsförhållandena för personer med funktionsnedsättning.

The Government presents a strategy for the implementation of disability policy in Sweden during 2011-2016. The strategy aims to present policy direction, with specific goals for society's efforts and how the results will be followed up during the next five years. An important starting point is the human rights enshrined, inter alia, in compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Convention for the Rights of the Child. The focus of the work should be to remove barriers to accessibility and participation in everyday life. Efforts should be more systematic, concrete and measurable. A monitoring system will increase the knowledge about the effects of the strategy on the living conditions of persons with disabilities.
