EDAMAT: A practical tool for effective disability mainstreaming in policy and practice

The EDAMAT (European Disability Action for Mainstreaming Assessment Tool) was developed over a two-year period in six European countries – Greece, Malta, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the UK – with the support of the European Commission and national groups of disability stakeholders. Its aim is to assess and promote the effective mainstreaming of disability in general policies, laws and programmes. EDAMAT emphasises how practically to implement the concept of mainstreaming and ensure that the result has a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities.
