This guidance instrument has been developed for people and organisations who are interested in changing current or developing new epilepsy related legislation. This could include people working in the field of epilepsy, politicians, officials or NGOs including organisations of service users.
It outlines the preliminary steps that may be taken before embarking on the drafting process as well as the steps for drafting, adopting and implementing epilepsy related legislation. It describes how to write legislation that can help people with epilepsy overcome the many barriers that impede their right to humane and dignified care and treatment; enhance their autonomy and liberty; improve community integration and promote and protect their human rights more generally.
