“I Would Like To Go To School”. Barriers to Education for Children with Disabilities in Lebanon

Human Rights Watch, (2018)


This report finds that although Lebanese law bars schools from discriminating against children with disabilities, public and private schools exclude many children with disabilities. For those allowed to enroll, schools often lack reasonable accommodations, such as modifications to the classroom environment and curricula or teaching methods to address children’s needs. Schools also require the families of children with disabilities to pay extra fees and expenses that in effect are discriminatory.

“They Stay until They Die” A Lifetime of Isolation and Neglect in Institutions for People with Disabilities in Brazil

Human Rights Watch, (2018)


This report found that many people with disabilities enter institutions as children and remain there for their entire lives. Most of these institutions visited by Human Rights Watch researchers did not provide for more than people’s basic needs, such as food and hygiene, with scarce contact with the community and little opportunity for personal development. Some residents are tied to their beds and given sedatives to control them.

Accessibility to Power: Framing of the Disability Rights Movements in India and Nepal

Henrik Schedin, Eds.: Disability, CBR & Inclusive Development Journal (DCIDJ), (2017)


This paper explores the effect of inherent social inequalities on disability rights movements and their political activities in India and Nepal. The situation for persons with disabilities is similar in both countries. Many social and cultural phenomena coincide, and laws and policies are currently being formulated in line with the human rights agenda. In order to understand the current situation and the envisioned future for persons with disabilities, it is important to probe how, and under what circumstances, the disability issue is framed.

Disability-inclusive social protection research in Nepal

Banks, Lena M., Walsham, Matthew and others, Eds.: International Centre for Evidence in Disability, (2018)


A national overview with a case study from Tanahun district. The overall aims of this study are (1) to assess the extent to which social protection systems in Nepal address the needs of people with disabilities; and (2) to identify and document elements of good practice, as well as challenges, in the design and delivery of social protection for people with disabilities. As most social protection programmes in Nepal are targeted to various groups considered to be a high risk of poverty or marginalisation (e.g. orphans, widows), the research mainly focuses on disability-specific schemes, as they are relevant to a higher proportion of people with disabilities.

Capturing the difference we make - Community-based Rehabilitation Indicators Manual

International Disability Development Consortium (IDDC) & World Health Organisation (WHO), Eds.: WHO, (2015)


WHO and the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) have worked together to develop the indicators presented in this manual that capture the difference CBR makes in the lives of people with disability in the communities where it is implemented. This manual presents these (base and supplementary) indicators and provides simple guidance on collecting the data needed to inform them. The indicators have been developed to show the difference between people with disability and their families and those without disability in relation to the information reported in the indicators. This comparability provides valuable information to CBR managers, donors and government agencies alike, which can be used to guide decision making, support advocacy and improve accountability. Further, the ability of the indicators to provide a comparison of the populations of people with disability to Persons without disability aligns with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (CRPD), which states that people with disability have equal rights to those without disabilities.
