Over 85 million people live with a disability in China, which is more than one out of every sixteen people. This panel will address ways to enable people with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of society from educational, legal, and medical perspectives. In what aspects have disability rights achieved the most success in the past five to ten years? In what areas have they encountered the most pushback? How can we develop practical plans to promote a more inclusive and barrier-free society?
The language of the event will be Chinese.
