National legislation and the Convention

It is a basic principle of international law that a State party to an international treaty must ensure that its own domestic law and practice are consistent with what is required by the treaty. In some cases, the treaty may give general guidance on the measures to be taken. In others, the treaty includes specific stipulations. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities contains both kinds of provisions. Parliament thus has a critical role in ensuring that the legislative measures required by the Convention are adopted.
