■Eugenics, CRPD List of Issues for Japan, “Disability Activism”

The CRPD Committee adopted List of Issues for the initial review of Japan late September, which included questions about compensations and redress for persons with disabilities who received eugenic sterilizations under the former Eugenic Protection Law. The CRPD Committee will have a constructive dialogue with Japan and issue its concluding observations August 2020.

Japan Disability Forum (JDF), a national umbrella organization of/for persons with disabilities in Japan, submitted a very detailed parallel report to the CRPD Committee, which included information on eugenic sterilizations.

Nagase Osamu, our eminent research professor as well as the vice-chair of CRPD Committee of JDF, contributed "Voices from survivors of forced sterilisations in Japan: Eugenics Protection Law 1948-1996" in the just published “The Routledge Handbook of Disability Activism” edited by Maria Berghs, Tsitsi Chataika, Yayha El-Lahib, A. K. Dube. The live website includes “Disability Activism Easy Read”
