The Pacific Rim International Forum, a Pacific Rim International Conference pre-event, highlights the potential to transform lives and communities through the theoretical and practical application of human rights norms and standards. The 2012 Forum seeks to engage participants in a lively discussion on key areas which support and facilitate the realization of fundamental human rights for millions of persons with disabilities, as expressed in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
