The UNCRPD is Legally Unenforceable

I’ve felt the same way about this UN enquiry; as the article states, the only real punishment is a downgrading to ‘B’ with regard to UKs human rights status, that will deny them a part in UN discussions, where they’ll just be observers.

Though it might highlight the devastating affect of welfare reforms – which is of course welcome – what is the point of such an investigation if there’s no real power for the UN to enforce adherence to the UN disability rights?
