Abstract

The aims of this chapter are threefold: first, to define the concept of persons with disabilities as currently stands; second, to review how the concept was formerly understood and how it evolved from a medical and charity-based approach to the current social and human rights-based approach; and third, to analyse the notable contribution made by EU legislators to the contemporary understanding of the status of disabled persons.
