National Observatory on the Condition of Persons with Disabilities


Welcome to the official website of the National Observatory on the Condition of Persons with Disabilities.

The National Observatory on the Condition of Persons with Disabilities represents a complex instrument created to analyze, improve and enhance information about disability in our country; at the same time, the Observatory aims at improving the level of effectiveness and adequacy of relevant policies.

The shift of cultural, legal and scientific perspective introduced with the ratification of the UN Convention, at a national, European and global level, is based on a different approach to disability, strongly oriented towards human rights. Consequently, the Observatory is called to innovate the interpretation and implementation of policies in the field of disability.
