The European Consortium of Foundations on Human Rights and Disability, Disability Mainstreaming Guide
The European Consortium of Foundations on Human Rights and Disability (of which Sabanci Foundation is a founding member) continues to carry out substantial work on the human rights of persons with disabilities.
The Disability Mainstreaming Guide, contributed by the Sabanci Foundation, aims to provide a guideline to foundations to integrate disability to the everyday work. This publication elaborates on the concept of mainstreaming and highlights the successful practices of foundations applying disability mainstreaming. Mainstreaming allows for the alleviation of the barriers to full social participation of the persons with disabilities. In this sense, the Disability Mainstreaming Guide provides a base for foundations to follow.

Best Practices for the Implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Report, January 2011
The European Consortium of Foundations on Human Rights and Disability (of which Sabanci Foundation is a founding member) has carried out a study which consists of collection of best practices, innovative ideas, or failures out of which learning experiences can be extracted. Launched in January 2009, the study creates a source of the best practices in the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities within the context of EU Disability Action Plan (DAP). Criteria such as equal opportunity, full participation and creating innovative strategy for people with disabilities are taken into consideration in determining projects that took place in the study. The Report on Best Practices for the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was published in January 2011 and had a great influence on the 2010-2020 European Disability Strategy document.
