Yet they have been in more marginalized situations due to historical discriminations and many forms of barriers that prevent their inclusion and participation equally and fully as members of our communities. In facing the current COVID-19 crises, evidence showed already that persons with disabilities are at greater risk and disproportionately affected by the COVID-19. The 14th session of the Conference of States Parties to the CRPD will take place from 15 to 17 June 2021. The themes of the Conference are as follows: Overarching theme: Building back better: COVID-19 response and recovery Meeting the needs, Realizing the rights, and Addressing the socio-economic impacts on persons with disabilities. Sub-theme 1: Protecting the rights of persons with disabilities in armed conflict and humanitarian emergencies Sub-theme 2: Living Independently, being included in the community Sub-theme 3: Right to education challenges with inclusive education and accessibility during COVID-19 UNOCT International Expert Group Meeting on the Protection of Urban Centres and Touristic Venues (15-16 June 2021) http://webtv.un.org/watch/unoct-international-expert-group-meeting-on-the-protection-of-urban-centres-and-touristic-venues-15-16-june-2021/6258863588001 On 15 and 16 June 2021, the Global Programme on Countering Terrorist Threats against Vulnerable Targets—lead by UNOCT in cooperation with CTED video6258863588001 Tue, 15 Jun 2021 16:29:38 +0000 6258863588001 12940000 On 15 and 16 June 2021, the Global Programme on Countering Terrorist Threats against Vulnerable Targets—lead by UNOCT in cooperation with CTED, UNICRI and UNAOC among other partners—will hold its second International Expert Group Meeting (EGM), after the successful one held in January together with the launch of the Programme.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2021: Access to Justice http://webtv.un.org/watch/world-elder-abuse-awareness-day-2021-access-to-justice/6258931955001 The UN General Assembly designated 15 June as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (res. A/RES/66/127).  According to WHO estimates, 1 in 6 people aged over 60 suffers from abuse. That means nearly 141 million older persons globally. video6258931955001 Wed, 16 Jun 2021 06:13:39 +0000 6258931955001 4503000 The UN General Assembly designated 15 June as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (res. A/RES/66/127).  According to WHO estimates, 1 in 6 people aged over 60 suffers from abuse. That means nearly 141 million older persons globally. This number might be much higher as violence, abuse and neglect of older persons are the most hidden and underreported violations of human rights. Older Persons deserve access to justice. Often, national laws and/or legal processes, do not serve the needs of older persons who may seek recourse. Older persons who have experienced situations of violence, abuse and neglect face multiple barriers in accessing judicial remedies such as issues of accessibility, affordability reasonable accommodation, excessive delays and backlogs in judicial processes, impact of digitalization, cultural norms, gender bias, discrimination, and entrenched ageism in policy, norms and practices. An expert panel will discuss ways to overcome the barriers to full access to justice and showcase examples of national and regional access to justice by older persons who suffered violence, abuse and neglect perpetrated by state or nonstate actors, including during the current COVID 19 pandemic.
