This briefing paper was developed by Plena Inclusión Spain within the project “Enabling inclusion and access to justice for defendants with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities” (ENABLE – 101056701 – JUST-2021-JACC).
The aim of this national briefing paper is to allow an assessment in Spain of:
– How and what barriers defendants with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities face in the criminal justice system in accessing information, support and procedural accommodations that prevent them from participating.
– To what extent and what ways is there law, policy and/or practice
(including promising practices) that enable defendants with intellectual and/or psychosocial disabilities to overcome these barriers, particularly through provision of procedural accommodations?
