A Guide To Disability Rights Laws

Working Paper 13-2014

Authors: Jan Priebe & Fiona Howell


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.
