The workshop will focus on litigating the most widespread violations of the rights of people with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities in post-communist countries, such as deprivation of legal capacity and institutionalization. It will also examine the use of regional and international mechanisms in developing jurisprudence and instigating law reform.
