Regional promotion of the DMI report: Free Movement of People with Disabilities in South East Europe: An Inaccessible Right?
During April, May and June 2007 workshops were held in Tirana, Skopje, Belgrade and Sarajevo to present the DMI report 'Free movement of people with disabilities in South East Europe: an Inaccessible Right?'. The Podgorica promotion of the report is planned for June 26, while the one in Pristina will be held in Septembre 2007
The dissemination workshops gathered stakeholders from civil society, government, as well as professionals who are involved in building and planning within the built environment. This is an opportunity for the different actors to discuss, from their perspectives, the progress that has been made in the past five years and the positive developments that have taken place. In addition, this was a chance to define the challenges that remain and the steps needed to create a barrier free environment where people with disabilities can move freely. The promotions/workshops also presented a chance for each actor to share how they can contribute to positively changing the situation.
