n South African Journal on Human Rights - Critical Perspectives on Human Rights and Disability Law, Marcia H. Rioux, Lee Ann Basser and Melinda Jones : book review

Volume 30, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0258-7203



This compilation of 16 essays on the intersection between disability law and core human rights principles of dignity, equality and inclusion and participation law is much needed in the field of disability rights and law. Modelled on critical legal studies, critical disability legal scholarship has developed over time with the advent of disability specific anti-discrimination legislation and continues to grow after the coming into force of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2008. Written by respected and emerging authors, this book contributes to the field of critical disability legal studies through a meticulous study of how domestic law and international law on disability interplays with human rights principles, situated within the social model perspective.
