8 MDG s: Monitoring in terms of Goals and Targets
9 Indicators: Pour Les Nuls RIGHT Attributes of the RIGHT INDICATORS are tools for measuring the existence or extent of a State s Commitment Effort Result in the realization of each attribute of a RIGHT Structural Indicators capture the acceptance and commitment of a State to undertake measures to realize a right Process indicators assess a State s efforts to transform commitments into results Outcome indicators assess the results of the state s efforts in furthering the right enjoyment of human rights
10 Indicators: Pour Les Nuls Identifying Attributes of a RIGHT: Article 15 - Freedom from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment 1. No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In particular, no one shall be subjected without his or her free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.
11 Indicators: Pour Les Nuls RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS (Article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) (1) Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.

(3) The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government; this will shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures. STRUCTURAL INDICATOR: Ratification of International human rights treaties, relevant to the right PROCESS INDICATORS: Proportion of received complaints on the right to participate in public affairs investigated and adjudicated by the national human rights institution Proportion of vacancies in (selected) public authorities at national and subnational level filled through selection of women and candidates from target population groups OUTCOME INDICATORS: Proportion of seats in parliament, elected and appointed bodies at subnational and local level held by women and target groups Reported cases of denial of access to public service or position on account of discrimination
12 Indicators: Pour Les Nuls Article 15 - Freedom from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment 2. States Parties shall take all effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent persons with disabilities, on an equal basis with others, from being subjected to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Structural Indicator: Existence of legal provisions in statutory law regarding the establishment of independent authorities responsible to monitor disability programmes and facilities (YES/NO) Process indicator: Number of facilities and programmes these authorities have inspected by geographic region and type in the last 2 years. Outcome indicator: Number of institutions and programmes that comply with human rights and other quality standards as defined by these authorities.
13 Indicators: Pour Les Nuls Varieties of State action respecting human rights: RESPECT: States must not interfere with the exercise and enjoyment of the rights of persons with disabilities. PROTECT: States must prevent violations by non-state actors, such as individuals, businesses, institutions, or other private organizations. FULFILL: States must take positive action to ensure that everyone, including persons with disabilities, can exercise their human rights.
14 Right to participate in cultural life and sport (CRPD Article 30) RESPECT PROTECT FULFILL The State repeals discriminatory regulations regarding fire safety restricting access of persons using wheelchairs to theaters. The State requires sign language interpretation to be provided for a cultural event open to the public in a private museum. The State adopts a national action plan addressing a comprehensive strategy to make sporting arenas accessible to persons with disabilities as participants and as spectators.
15 Indicators: Pour Les Nuls STRUCTURE PROCESS OUTCOME RESPECT PROTECT FULFILL for each Attribute?
16 CRPD INDICATORS Obstacle: Indicators that balance CRPD-relevance and feasibility
17 Indicators that balance CRPD-relevance and feasibility To be CRPD-relevant, the indicator must take into account the variety and detail of CRPD rights and attributes E.g. General Values and Principles
18 Indicators that balance CRPD-relevance and feasibility Legal qualifications e.g. reasonable efforts appropriate steps, measures that are necessary
19 Attribute DETAIL Indicators that balance CRPD-relevance and feasibility
21 Indicators that balance CRPD-relevance and feasibility Standard Socio-economic Indicator EMPLOYMENT RATE does not capture the detail of Article 27 BUT: indicators that would capture the detail are not feasible, since we do not collect these data
