Anthropology, Disability and the CRPD
- 19 Downloads
James Rice uses an anthropological perspective to explore some of the cultural implications of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD 2006). He uses a content analysis of the Reservations, Declarations and Objections made to the CRPD by some States, to identify a number of tensions between the human rights of persons with disabilities as set out in the CRPD and the broader cultural values and priorities of particular States. Rice argues that any human rights convention, including the CRPD, has to negotiate with local cultural norms.
