The Human Rights Council adopted in March 2015 the Resolution 28/4 that urges States to consider further integrating and mainstreaming the perspective and rights of persons with disabilities into its work. Aiming to encourage and support Permanent Missions to the UN in Geneva and New York to mainstream the rights of persons with disabilities across intergovernmental negotiations, the International Disability Alliance (IDA) elaborated the present compilation of relevant HRC Resolutions from 2010 to 2018.

This compilation considers the UN agreed language in all HRC resolutions, approved at its regular sessions from March 2010 to March 2018. Its practical nature allows the use of all resolutions by name, session and year of approval, with a detailed list of sponsors and co-sponsors. All references that are considered directly or indirectly relevant, of interest or that can be strengthened in the future were retained. Paragraphs are identified as per in negotiations, meaning, by preliminary paragraphs (PP) and operative paragraphs (OP). Links to available versions in different UN official languages were provided. 

The structure of the compilation is divided as following:

  • Specific resolutions of persons with disabilities
  • Resolutions on specific groups or specific rights
  • Resolutions on specific or general thematic
  • Country-specific resolutions
