Critical Essays on Disability Rights Jurisprudence By Sanjay Jain

Critical Essays on Disability Rights Jurisprudence By Sanjay Jain

The book is a collection of high-quality research papers contributed by eminent academicians, philosophers and jurists. The main objective of this book is to disseminate and spread awareness about Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPWD). Secondly, the book also provides useful inputs to activists, lawyers, jurists and academicians to evolve empowerment strategies for recognition, promotion and protection for RPWD. Besides the Indian scenario, the book also explores developments in disability rights in countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka and USA thereby broadening the horizon of the field. Besides, there are also high-quality articles engaged in human rights discourse focusing on international law standards of RPWD.


Mainstream scholarship still does not attach much relevance to either disability rights jurisprudence or disability legal studies. This book aims to fill this deficit by pushing the disability rights jurisprudence into the mainstream through high quality articles written by prominent scholars like Professor Upendra Baxi, Professor Amita Dhanda.
