This book gives an insight into the making of the United Nations Convention on Disability, the first binding international instrument of its kind on disability. In a lucid and simple style, the book provides an in depth understanding of the position of States giving emphasis on the role of India in the making of the convention and also the background of its evolution. A comprehensive coverage of four major issues on:
Definition
Education
Work and Employment
Health and Rehabilitation
has also been included. Special attention has been given to assimilate the international scenario on disability with the recent national legislations in the area.
The book will prove to be a useful guide for law students, civil society, the academic community at large and indeed to all those who have a humanitarian approach in upholding the interest of differently-abled community.
