The ODDH fosters the articulation between science, citizenship and innovation through the participation of researchers, disability organisations, public bodies and experts on disability and human rights in the Observatory's different bodies, i.e. the Advisory Board and work team.
The active participation of persons with disabilities in the ODDH is a cornerstone of this project, which uses emancipatory methods. This involvement entails the presence of persons with disabilities in the work team and their representative organisations on the Advisory Board.
