EU Liaison Office

The European Union is the biggest provider of development aid in the world and a crucial player on international cooperation and development policy. The EU is also the first regional integration organisation to become a party to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This means that the EU’s foreign policy and development cooperation has to respect and promote the rights of persons with disabilities, too. LIGHT FOR THE WORLD works with the EU institutions to make sure that disability inclusion is actively taken up in EU development cooperation, either in the political decisions made in Brussels, or in actions on the ground in partner countries.

Cooperation with other organisations is highly valued and via our membership of networks, amongst others the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) the European Disability Forum (EDF), we work towards a more inclusive international cooperation.
