Abstract [en]

By the turn of the twenty-first century disability came to be seen increasingly as a

human rights issue by both policy makers and people with disabilities themselves.

Human rights replaced previous models for understanding disability, which were

often rooted in the fields of medicine or social welfare. This thesis looks at why

human rights has become the predominant framework for addressing disability at

international organisations, in particular the United Nations (UN) and the European

Union (EU). It firstly considers how understandings of disability and the treatment

of people with disability have evolved over time. The focus then turns to the growing

emphasis on human rights in the late twentieth century, before analysing how this

approach has been translated in a modern policy environment.
