The EU has prepared and submitted its initial report to the UN Committee in June 2014. In 2015, the UN Committee will review the report and the work the EU has done for its citizens with disabilities.
In April 2015, the UN Committee will
have a first internal discussion on the EU report and they will prepare a list
of questions to send to the EU for issues that require further clarification.
This list is called “list of issues”.
After that, the EU will have to respond to this list of issues. In August 2015,
the UN Committee will meet the EU and will thoroughly discuss the report and
the answers on the list of issues. This is called “constructive dialogue”. As a result, the UN Committee will give its
view on how efficiently the EU has implemented the Convention and will make
recommendations for improvement. These are called “concluding observations”.
