Product Description


Current issues and debates surrounding `disability` include social and political rights, social inclusion and citizenship. In developed countries the debate has moved beyond a concern about perceived cost of maintaining dependent people with a disability to an effort to find effective ways of ensuring people with a disability that they can participate in and contribute to society in all spheres of life.

The "disabilities" series comes as an index of meetings, discussions and resolutions taken in order to enable "impaired" people to integrate in the society or in the community that surrounds them without being treated differenty or un-respectfully.
