Australia ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in mid-2008. On the domestic level, The Australian Government launched a National Disability Strategy (NDS) in 2010, and in July of this year, Disability Care Australia (DCA) which was formerly known as the NDIS, will commence on a trial basis in several states. At the International level, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD Committee) is charged with the function to monitor the implementation of the CRPD in all ratifying countries. Professor McCallum is the immediate past Chairperson and a current Vice-Chairperson of the CRPD Committee. Australia will be holding a constructive dialogue with the CRPD Committee next September. As an Australian citizen, Professor McCallum will not be participating in this constructive dialogue. However, now is an opportune time for Professor McCallum to analyse the manner in which the CRPD Committee has conducted its monitoring role since 2011.
