A Guide To Disability Rights Laws in Indonesia

In the past few decades, the Government of Indonesia has passed and signed a substantial number of domestic laws and international conventions/treaties that deal with the rights and opportunities of persons with disabilities (PWDs). Disability is a cross-cutting issue and requires an extensive review and monitoring of multiple pieces of legislation that have already been passed in or ratified by Indonesia. In this context, the objective of this report is to provide an overview for a broad audience of the crucial elements of the Indonesian legal framework on PWDs’ rights.
