The panel will be informed by the findings of Disability Rights International’s recent investigations in Ukraine and the report Left Behind in the War: Dangers Facing Children with Disabilities In Ukraine’s Orphanages. During times of war and emergency how can children and adults in institutions be protected without reinforcing segregated systems of service?   What have recent experiences from Ukraine taught us about the challenges of enforcing the right to live in the community for all people with disabilities? Panelists will discuss immediate challenges facing humanitarian relief agencies as they respond to children with disabilities in Ukraine’s orphanages or recently evacuated to neighboring countries.
