Cambridge Disability Law and Policy Series
According to the UN High Commission on Human Rights six hundred million people, nearly one tenth of the world's population, are afflicted with some form of disability. Many live deplorable lives faced with physical and social barriers which prevent their integration and full participation in their communities. As a consequence of the International Human Rights Movement persons with disabilities now have a mechanism to petition their local authorities and national governments to secure their rights and privileges to fully participate in their societies. In addition to the human rights dimension, advances in medical science and rehabilitation techniques are enabling people with disabilities to take a more active role in the workplace. The Cambridge Disability Law and Policy Series will address this global movement and provide publications that will address, analyze and explore, in a comparative and international perspective, legal and policy perspectives that will provide resources for individuals, academics, practitioners and policy makers on how to effectively further the cause of disability rights. This series is a good fit for the Cambridge law list as it adds a specific focused issue to an already well developed general list of titles in human rights, medical/legal issues, law and society, comparative and international law, and globalization.
This important series explores legal and policy perspectives that provide resources for individuals, academics, practitioners and policy makers on how to effectively further the cause of disability rights.
The series is edited by Peter Blanck, Syracuse University and Robin Paul Malloy, Syracuse University.
