UK Inquiry into disability-related harassment
"For the purposes of this inquiry, the Commission defined disability-related harassment as unwanted, exploitative or abusive conduct against disabled people which has the purpose or effect of either: violating the dignity, safety, security or autonomy of the person experiencing it, or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading or offensive environment. It includes harassment of the friends and family of disabled people and of people perceived to be disabled. It should be noted that our definition of disability-related harassment goes wider than the definition currently used by the criminal justice system."
