The Revival of Human Rights: A New Perspective on Human Rights through the Lens of Disability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper argues that adopting the lens of disability may provide a way forward for the revival of human rights. It shows how it is disability that draws attention to resource deprivation which hampers the enjoyment of human rights. It does so by focusing on two novel aspects of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD): the general principle of participation and the adoption of a rights-based approach to dealing with disability. To illustrate this view, it uses as example the impact the restrictions have had on disabled people during the Covid-19 pandemic.
