Welcome to HPOD!

The Harvard Law School Project on Disability (HPOD) works to promote the human rights of people with disabilities worldwide.

We empower all people to use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) to develop fully equitable societies.

HPOD supports the development of disability civil society, informs innovative legislative and policy development, provides legal advice and human rights training to persons with disabilities, their representative organizations, non-governmental organizations, National Human Rights Institutions, and governments. We enable inclusive development practices.

As a global disability law and policy center, HPOD undertakes and encourages teaching and ground-breaking scholarship on disability rights.
