'Rescuing' Disability from the Activists: The Canadian Government interprets the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities"

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



Abstract:

Speaker Two considers the Canadian government’s ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Like many countries, Canada’s ratification will include interpretative declarations and reservations that represent a “rescue narrative” with which the government ‘protects’ Canadians through maintaining legal and political structures, thus undermining activist efforts and obscuring the ongoing government-sponsored segregation of Canadians with disabilities. Care should be a central civic value (Williams), but this scenario requires what feminist Garland-Thomson terms “intellectual tolerance” in order to account for the oppressive side effects of ‘caring’ state actions and disability activists’ aversion to the concept of care.
