Enabling disabled people to reduce poverty study: Disability and a human rights approach to development

Abstract

This is the second of two linked briefing notes prepared for the Disability Knowledge and Research (KaR) programme. In the first, it was argued that the social model of disability presents a conceptualisation of disability that makes the most sense in terms of an emancipating, participatory, human rights approach to development.

This note looks at what the human rights approach to development means in practice, drawing on both what disabled people have already achieved and highlighting the challenges and opportunities offered by the new aid instruments and structures.
