The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was adopted by the General Assembly by its resolution 61/106 of 13 December 2006. It came into force on 3 May 2008 upon the 20th ratification. Article 40 of the Convention stipulates that “The States Parties shall meet regularly in a Conference of States Parties in order to consider any matter with regard to the implementation of the present Convention.” Since 2008, ten sessions of the Conference of States Parties have been held at United Nations Headquarters, New York.

The 11th session of the Conference of States Parties to the CRPD will take place at the United Nations Headquarters, New York, from 12 to 14 June 2018.

The session will expect to feature among other agenda items an election of 9 members of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
