Disability Human Rights Law is an emerging field that this Book and Special Issue will help to shape. It is an amalgamation of human rights law, disability studies, and disability rights law. It views rights in a novel way, opening a new line of scholarly inquiry. It sees rights as they apply to the individual, with regard to the individual’s particular abilities, needs, and social barriers they face. This new Special Issue welcomes submissions on the broader impact of the field, as well as more targeted submissions on particular rights within the CRPD and beyond.
