Description:
The adoption of a "rights-based approach" in legislation has come to constitute a corc element being sought by groups representing people with disabilities and those working with them. This study seeks to contribute to this on-going debate by clarifying. some key issues and informing the Irish discussion by a review of some relevant experience elsewhere Current consideration of the rights-based approach to services for people with disabilities is taking place within a much broader debate about economic and social rights, in Ireland as elsewhere. This study brings Out first that the assumption which often seems to underlie arguments from both proponents and opponents, that adopting a rights approach has a clear and transparent interpretation, is not in fact -warranted. A variety of approaches to delivering services, framing entitlements and instituting enforcement mechanisms can legitimately be seen as arising from a rights perspective.
