European Disability Card to Launch in 17 EU Member States




The European Union has pledged to allocate €1.5 million to endorse 17 Member States that will welcome the initiative to provide the EU Disability Card to prevent the lack of recognition of people’s rights to move freely with disabilities. This project will turn on its engine at the start of 2016, and will also urge other Member States to join in collaboration.

Marianne Thyssen, Commissioner of Employment, Social Affairs, Skills, and Labor Mobility stressed on June 30 at the European Parliament that everyone with a disability must be equally recognized of their full rights and benefits. It is a basic entitlement for all to move freely; and without this recognition, action must be taken to a higher scale.

In addition, this step forward will also generate greater perspectives in realizing the EU2020 goals.
