Welcome to Centre for Disability Studies

Centre for Disability Studies has been established with the following objectives:

  • To generate legal knowledge on disability issues
  • To create a rights based discourse on disability
  • To advocate for the rights of persons with disability
  • To catalyse civil society understanding on disability rights
  • To document current developments in disability law and policy

It is an initiative to trigger thought processes on the interplay between the legal order and disabilities. The Centre is a congregation of legal minds who are especially focussing on how the power of law can be used to challenge the stereotypes and prejudices towards persons with disabilities. The members of the Centre are through the medium of writing and research, teaching and training, dialogue, discussions and consultations attempting to create an empowering legal discourse on disability rights and the full social participation of persons with disabilities.
