AGENDA (General Election Network for Disability Access) will be holding the Second Regional Dialogue on Access to Elections for Persons with Disabilities.

1. Date : 10 – 11 November 2012
2. Venue : Ayodhya Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia

In democracies worldwide, voters with disabilities encounter many barriers to exercising their right to vote. Although the right to vote is protected by various international legal frameworks, such as the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the fact remains that there is not universal access to the electoral process.

In an effort to highlight election access barriers and identify solutions, AGENDA is holding this regional dialogue. This event will serve as a neutral forum to bring together persons with disabilities, election commissions, practitioners, policy makers and academics from around the world to share information and experiences. It is our hope that this conference will increase knowledge about barriers to elections and promote the exchange of best practices.

Please join us in this dialogue and be part of our joint efforts to improve the political rights of persons with disabilities.

Featured Speakers:

  • Regional electoral management body representatives
  • Representatives from disability rights organizations from various ASEAN Countries
  • Representatives from regional civil society organizations (elections and human rights)
  • Academics from various regional and international universities
  • Representatives from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR)
  • Representatives from the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights
  • Representatives from the ASEAN Disability Forum
  • Representatives from international elections organizations
