Considering CRPD Article 30

Those who want to thoroughly understand the meaning of Inclusive Tourism will appreciate the 2009 article by Lord and Stein, "Social Rights and the Relational Value of the Rights to Participate in Sport, Recreation, and Play."


 The article begins by charting the paradigmatic shift from a medical model of disability to a social model: a rights oriented understanding of disability that makes possible an equality approach to dismantling persistent disability discrimination and social marginalization, isolation, and exclusion. Next, it analyzes the conceptual framework for social rights in the CRPD and the connection between state obligations to eliminate disability discrimination and social rights'guarantees for equal participation in sport, recreation, leisure and play.

It further considers the content of CRPD's Article 30. Finally, it explores the implications of these rights for the expressive and socializing effects of the Convention.

The new book, "United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities - Multidisciplinary Perspectives", Jukka Kumpuvuori and Martin Scheinin (eds.) includes"Participatory Justice, the UN Disability Human Rights Convention, and the Right to Participate in Sport, Recreation, and Play"
