Emergent Disability and the Context of Equality: Considering the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities marks a shift in international legal relationships to and conceptions of disability. This is certainly evident since the Convention is the first instrument of its kind related to disability, and also because its premises differ from the earlier World Programme on Disability, and more closely integrate the premises of U.S. domestic equal protection and disability rights law. This paper critically examines the implications of internationalizing a U.S. disability law framework, with particular attention to the problem of "emergent disability", or disability which is specifically produced as a consequence of social inequity or violence.
