As a result, the Convention clearly explains that no decision concerning the rights of persons with disabilities is legitimate unless it is taken by persons with disabilities or with their active and meaningful involvement. The motto of the disability movement – “Nothing about us without us” – is applicable on all the rights of the Convention:
The Convention also provides for the establishment, following the rules adopted by the UN, of a national mechanism for independent and transparent monitoring of the country obligations under the Convention. Such mechanism, established by law, must have a very broad mandate to promote, protect and monitor the implementation of the rights protected under the Convention. The continuous monitoring by this body of the national human rights situation is an incentive for the government to take seriously the obligations undertaken when ratifying the Convention and show genuine progress in fulfilling them.
