Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Hi all,

I am Pradeep from Sri Lanka. Is anyone working on "disability rights advocacy" within your practice. I really interested in to that field and thinking of how to integrate the idea of rights of persons with disability, especially UNCRPD concepts in to practice.

Re: Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Hi Pradeep,

Thanks for bringing the topic up. I have a keen interest in the rights of persons with disabilities and occupational participation. Im currently doing research on applications of occupational justice in disability policy formulation in Namibia.

Re: Rights of Persons with Disabilities

It is great to hear that few of us are interested in the topic. I am doing a literature review on how the current legal and policy framework in Sri Lanka can support or resist the inclusion of persons with disabilities, these days. I will do a e-poster presentation at the Australian OT conference in this July as well. Hope to share the paper with you once it is published.
Anyway UNCRPD is a very relevant document for OTs.
