Survey Report on Remedies

Independent Living Institute.  2020.  Survey Report on Remedies.

DRD conducted a survey on remedies in cooperation with the project Article 19 as a tool. The survey was carried out with the aim to gain an overview of the topic of remedies, to see where and what law systems in general are lacking or which remedies can be transferred from one country to another for better effectiveness in using the law as a tool for social change and individual justice. The following report sumarizes the results of the survey and provides an overview of some legal remedies to enable interested readers to learn from other countries' experiences as well as to gain knowledge about other types of remedies which might be more effective for ensuring protection and enforcement of rights.

Independent Living Institute är remissinstans till betänkandet (SOU:2014:9).

I utredningen föreslås att nuvarande timschablon för ersättningen för personlig assistans görs om till en grundschablon per timme med i huvudsak samma innehåll som idag men med kraftigt reducerat belopp. Grundschablonen föreslås också täcka kostnader vid ordinarie assistents sjukfrånvaro som hittills bekostades av kommunerna. Utredningen föreslår också en tilläggsschablon som ska kunna beviljas assistansberättigade som har särskilt stort behov av assistans på nätter och helger och som inte fyllt 65 år.

English
What is the relationship of global health to global disability? Medicalizing the issue of disability may occlude the social and political aspects of disability.
