Topic: Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Currently, there are over one-billion people classified as disabled, either physically or mentally. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with disabilities states: “[The goal of the UN is to move] from viewing persons with disabilities as “objects” of charity, medical treatment and social protection towards viewing persons with disabilities as “subjects” with rights.” As a global committee, we will need to cooperate with fellow nations and work side by side to produce a practical plan to tackle the issue of prejudice against people with disabilities; this problem is one that exists in all countries, no matter the size, wealth, and culture. We must remember that people with disabilities are still human, the same as all the delegates in our committee. Keeping that in mind, JAMUN delegates will need to face difficult questions including, but not limited to, medical services, public areas, ethics, and equal opportunities.
