Critical Perspectives on Human Rights and Disability Law
Edited by Rioux (health policy and management, York U., Canada), Basser (law, La Trobe U., Australia), and Jones (an independent researcher and lawyer and former director of the Australian Human Rights Centre at the U. of New South Wales), this collection of 16 papers explores the interrelationships between human rights principles, human rights law, domestic law, and the experience of people with disabilities, with an emphasis on promoting a critical understanding of the ways in which legal constructions of knowledge are embedded in both understandings of the disabled person in law and in the ideology that is produced surrounding disabilities. A central theme animating the volume is that justice for people with disabilities must be founded on the human rights principles of dignity, equality, and inclusion and participation, both independently and together. The papers have therefore been organized by the editors into sections addressing these principles of human rights in the context of disability law, human rights issues related to the dignity of the person, inequalities between people with disabilities and those without, and issues of inclusion and participation.
