Change a life
In this country which is moving towards democracy, disabled people’s organisations are mobilising to make their voices heard.
During the Arab Spring in 2011, the constitutional monarchy found itself up against the February 20th Movement. This movement succeeded in bringing about reform of the constitution, which now formally provides for non-discrimination on the basis of disability.
However, policies to improve the social participation of people with disabilities are still applied very inconsistently, mainly due to a lack of funding. Disabled people have very few dedicated services (care assistants, building access etc.) and their participation in civil society remains limited.
However, disabled people’s organisations are gearing up to push through rapid change and ensure that people with disabilities are fully taken into account within the national reform process.
