Ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

This petition made change with 208 supporters!


Being a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2007 meant that Barbados had indicated that it agreed with the main idea of the convention, that it agreed it will not take any action to violate the main idea of the convention, and that it was interested in becoming a Party in the future. Being a signatory does not mean that the country is legally required to comply with all the specific provisions of the convention, as it must when it is a States Party.That is why ratification is so important. It is the essential step needed to make a country a States Party and legally bind it to comply with the provisions of the convention. Some countries are quick to sign up to conventions, but take years to actually ratify them, and until they ratify they are not obliged to comply with the obligations described in the conventions.
