dc.description.abstractThe human rights approach to disability is part of the human rights movement that has developed over the latter half of the 20th century. The increasing international attention to human rights issues has lead to a number of significant international human rights commitments in the areas of disability. Examples of these achievements are reviewed, and some recently proposed strategies for enforcing the human rights of people with disabilities, to ensure international commitments are respected and meaningful at the local level, are described.
