Meeting to introduce “Research on the accessibility of elections for people with disabilities in Vietnam" at Hanoi Independent Living Center

On 14 June 2012 afternoon, Hanoi Independent Living Center for (Hanoi ILC) held a Project Launching Meeting to introduce the “Research  on  the accessibility of  elections for  people  with  disabilities  in Vietnam". Present at the meeting were the partners who will be in cooperation with us during the implementation process. There key persons among the delegates were Ph.D Khuat Thu Hong – an expert from The Institute for Social Development Studies (ISDS), Ms. Tieu Minh Huong – a lecturer from University of LabourSocial Affairs, reporters from People newspaper,  Sponsor magazine, Cultural newspaper, new Hanoi newspaper and Radio the Voice of Vietnam.


In the meeting, Ms. Hong Ha, Hanoi ILC Director made a brief introduction on Hanoi ILC and the Research  on  the accessibility of elections for  people  with  disabilities  in. She emphasized the reason why Hanoi ILC conducts this project. In reality, Vietnam has had no disabled representatives at the National Assembly, as the result the voice of people with disabilities (PWDs) has not been strong enough to bring changes into the policy making and implementing processes. Moreover, a number of PWDs are not aware of their rights to general election. Therefore, doing this research, Hanoi ILC expects to raise the voice of PWDs for the right of PWDs to general election, raising awareness of the society and promote the full implementation of the rights of people with disabilities based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of PWDs (CRPD). On the other hand, Hanoi ILC hopes that the Research can provide information and data to the policy makers on an important aspect of PWDs’ life and partly support the full participation of PWDs in society.

 During the meeting, the delegates shared their useful ideas and suggestions to find the best way of conducting the survey, proposed solutions to the difficulties that may occur during the process, so as to successfully meet the goals and bring real benefits for PWDs.

 This project, funded by The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and with technical support from General Election Network for Disability Access (AGENDA), started officially in June 2012 and will be done within one year.
