Disability discrimination affects an estimated 10 percent of the world population. Forms of disability discrimination include denial of physical access to buildings and means of transportation, denial of reasonable accommodation in employment, isolation and segregation of children with disabilities in schools, and undue restrictions on legal capacity. A 2014 survey by the Fundamental Rights Agency concluded that persons with disabilities face considerable obstacles to political participation all over the EU member states, while in 15 EU states people with intellectual or psychosocial disabilities under legal guardianship are stripped of their voting rights. Persons with intellectual and mental disabilities are among the most vulnerable human beings in today’s world, in particular when they are in closed institutions, from mental hospitals and residential homes to prisons and police detention cells.
