The Harvard Law School Project on Disability (HPOD) develops and disseminates educational materials on the human rights of people with disabilities. An informed civil society is vital to promoting, implementing, and monitoring the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Educational materials are urgently needed now that the CRPD has become international law. We are pleased to offer publications that explain the Convention and the rights it contains, enable self-advocacy of CRPD rights, teach how to be a global advocate for people with disabilities, and explain how to promote implementation of the Convention.

Academic research by scholars associated with the Project has examined the ways in which societies conceive of disability and use law and other instruments, with varying degrees of effectiveness, to speak to the political, economic, and social concerns that confront people with disabilities and their societies.
