Making Disability Rights Real in Southeast Asia : Implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in ASEAN Hardback
Edited by Derrick L. Cogburn, Tina Kempin Reuter
This book evaluates the national implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in ASEAN.
Working with country-specific research teams, the contributors compiled detailed case-studies of CRPD implementation in each country in ASEAN.
This book presents a detailed overview of the problem, the relevant literature, and the conceptual framework, and then it explores the implementation of the CRPD in each of the ten countries in Southeast Asia.
Details include the factors that influenced each country to ratify the CRPD, the focal point structure of implementation, the independent mechanism established to monitor the implementation, and the civil society organizations involved. This book also evaluates the implications of CRPD implementation for human rights and development in ASEAN, including the degree of institutionalized support for persons with disabilities, the development objectives of the CRPD against the strategic objectives of the ASEAN economic community and the broader ASEAN community, and the way these developments compare with those in other countries and regions. Working with country-specific research teams, the editors compiled detailed case-studies of CRPD implementation on each country in ASEAN.
This book presents a detailed overview of the problem and the relevant literature.
The contributors also offer conclusions on the research and national and ASEAN-level recommendations for moving forward.
