In November, 2012, 33 individuals attended the Moldova DRPI training. The training session was facilitated by DRPI’s Eastern Europe Regional Officer (Rados Keravica) and staff from DRPI’s regional Partner Center for Society Orientation (COD).
Subsequently the holistic report “Monitoring of rights of persons with disabilities in Republic of Moldova” was drafted based on surveys and research reports conducted in 2013 within the project implemented by Association “MOTIVATIE” of Moldova in partnership with the “Center for Society Orientation – COD” from Serbia, with the financial support of the European Union, within the Program “European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights”. The holistic report focuses on three fields:
- The analysis of individual experience of persons with disabilities from the Republic of Moldova;
- The monitoring of legislation, policies and programs regarding the observance of rights of persons with disabilities in Republic of Moldova;
- The monitoring of mass media and society’s attitude towards persons with disabilities.
The survey Analysis of individual experience of persons with disabilities from the Republic of Moldova” had been conducted by the Association “MOTIVAȚIE” in partnership with the Institute for Marketing and Polls IMAS-INC, Chisinau. During the survey, 149 semi-structured interviews had been conducted. The interviews had been conducted in February 01 – June 30, 2013, by a group of 24 persons with disabilities, hired as interviewers by Association “MOTIVAȚIE” of Moldova. The monitoring of individual experience of persons with disabilities had been carried out in the fol- lowing districts of Republic of Moldova: Cahul, Causeni, Comrat, Soroca, Soldanesti, Edinet, Orhei, Nisporeni, Hancesti, Criuleni, Anenii Noi, Chisinau (including the suburbs), Ialoveni, the Transnistrian Region.
The report Monitoring of the legislation, policies and programs: the observance of rights of persons with disabilities from the Republic of Moldova is focused on the analysis of legislation, policies and programs regarding the observance of rights of persons with disabilities in the context of ratification by the Republic of Moldova of the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities adopted in New York on December 13, 2006. The report reflects the main problems and gaps from the national legislation and policies regarding the observance of rights of persons with disabilities.
The survey Monitoring of mass media and society’s attitude towards persons with disabilities reflects the way disability topics are tackled. The aim of the survey consists in the monitoring of the Moldovan mass-media for the identification of messages which it sends regarding persons with disabilities and their role in society, methods of approaching disabilities and determining the attitude of society towards persons with disabilities.
