Globalization is having a significant impact on international disability policy. This course provides an overview of international public policies on disability, focusing on the human rights of people with disabilities, including the right to competitive employment. Students will be introduced to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and provided an in-depth comparative policy analysis of current and emerging disability and employment policy from around the world. Class lectures will be supplemented with presentations by experts from different international contexts (e.g., Australia, Barbados, Taiwan, India) that will outline the evolution of country-specific disability policies, national incorporation of the UN Convention, and successes and challenges in ensuring substantive equality for people with disabilities. As an international comparative course, students will also learn the essentials of cross-national comparisons, international human rights norms and laws more generally, and principles of comparing diverse cultural, political, and economic regions.
