The modalities of the panel are: 7 minutes for panelists, 3 minutes for Member States and 2 minutes for Observers. Depending on the number of speakers inscribed, the moderator may readjust the speaking time appropriately in order to enhance the interactive nature of the discussion. The interactive debate will be followed by concluding remarks by the moderator. States, national human rights institutions, international organizations and non-governmental organizations are encouraged to participate and make their contributions to the debate, subject to the modalities and the practice of the Council. In particular, NGO coordination is strongly encouraged to maximize the use of time.

During the debate, international sign language interpretation and real time captioning will be provided and webcasted. Physical accessibility will be promoted by making room facilities wheelchair friendly. As per established guidelines, braille printing will be available on demand. The “Accessibility guide to the Human Rights Council for persons with disabilities” is available for further reference at: ). Outcome The debate will seek to identify good practices in promoting the right of persons with disabilities to inclusive education. It will also contribute to raising awareness of the challenges that persons with disabilities continue to face in enjoying the right to education, and to highlight the measures that States and other stakeholders can take with a view to promoting the establishment of inclusive education systems. Finally, the debate will provide an opportunity to highlight the importance of having an inclusive education goal in the post-2015 development agenda.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
