What is it about?

Social Inclusion of People with Disabilities: National and International Perspectives proposes a multifaceted approach to the topic of disability rights. Arie Rimmerman avoids the sole reliance on qualitative methods to analyse the social inclusion and exclusion of people with disabilities, differing from many existing studies that frequently relate only to access to adequate resources or conditions. This book also differs from the usual legal analysis of social inclusion and exclusion as a human rights issue, combined with the study of anti-discrimination or equal opportunity policies and legislation. Rimmerman not only uses both approaches, but also proposes an interpretation of historical and cultural roots of social exclusion of people with disabilities. This approach includes considering an in-depth view of expressions of stereotypes that are obstacles to implementation of the domestic and international policies and law.
