rticle 9 of the UNCRPD concentrates on the accessibility of information, communica-tion, and knowledge, which is crucial to enable the full and equal participation of deaf persons. The European Union of the Deaf (EUD) explores in this book how access to information and communication can be defined from a deaf sign language perspective. The book highlights the connections between Article 9 and other articles of the UNCRPD. To present a range of deaf sign language aspects and possibilities that relate to this synergy, the volume is organised into seven interlinking themes: legal frameworks for accessibility in the UNCRPD and the EU, accessibility during the COVID-19 pandemic, access to social and mental health services, an intersectionality perspective on accessi-bility, access to justice and employment, access to audiovisual content, and access to new technologies. This is the fifth book in the EUD’s UNCRPD series, which is funded by the European Commission’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme.
