Within the framework of the “European-Arab Cooperation Forum on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities”, ESCWA invites students, early career researchers and authors to submit academic or policy papers and research posters to be presented in an academic conference scheduled for December 2022.

Participants are invited to submit their paper or research poster abstracts in Arabic or English. Submissions should focus on the theme of the academic conference, which is “independent living and integration in the community”, a right enshrined in Article 19 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Deadline for applications and to submit abstracts is 30 April. The accepted papers will be published by the Cooperation Forum following the conference.
