In 2018 the Government established a Coordinative body for implementation of the UN Convention on the rights of people with disabilities. The Coordinative body has 15 members (2 from the Prime Minister’s Office, members from 11 ministries, a member from the National Council of organisations of people with disabilities etc.). It is supposed to be a kind of national mechanism for implementation of this Convention and to cooperate with representative associations of people with disabilities.
The new Law on Social Protection (May 2019) improves the rights of people with disabilities (better services in the local communities, personal assistance and home care, social inclusion etc.).
However, there are no general initiatives for inclusion of people with disabilities in the field of culture. Some institutions incidentally carry out programmes that encourage inclusion and/or artistic creation of people with disabilities but they are not organised efforts. One of the initiatives of the previous mentioned Coordinative body in the field of culture was to include as standard the use of sign language in some performances of the “Comedy Theatre”.
