He fights for the rights of people with disabilities and their families through awareness-raising, strategic litigation, and advocacy.  He holds training sessions on legal capacity and guardianship regimes. He is actively involved in bringing cases before Hungarian and international authorities to promote the recognition of the decision-making capacities of disabled people and to work towards their social inclusion.
