14/2013 concerning the right to live independently and be included in the community

The author alleged that Australia had violated articles 4, 5(2), 14, 18, 19, 22, 23, 26 and 28 of the CRPD because he resides in a specialised rehabilitation and transitional accommodation service rather than in his preferred living arrangement in the community. The Committee considered that the communication was inadmissible.
