What is the situation regarding inclusion in Europe?

Dear Sir or Madam,

What about inclusion? What barriers remain despite ten years of ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities? What about the participation of people with disabilities in other European countries? How can assistive devices, especially digital ones, contribute to more participation? We have addressed these and other questions in our Topic of the Month.

Have an inclusive week,

Anne Hofmann
Editorial team
