This publication emanates from an ESCAP research project to study the trends of Asian and Pacific countries in harmonizing national laws with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It examines the extent to which reporting obligations have been fulfilled in a timely and substantive manner and the ways in which national human rights institutions and civil society organizations, in particular organizations of persons with disabilities, have been involved in that process. It further analyses good practices in harmonization, and challenges which have arisen in relation to the implementation of the Convention in Australia. This analytical country case study was prepared under the above mentioned ESCAP project and draws from reliable sources. It is issued for the attention of members and associate members in the ESCAP region towards further enhancement of the effective harmonization of national legislation with the Convention and the implementation of the Convention
