European Yearbook of Disability Law

Volume 3

Edited by: Lisa Waddington, Gerard Quinn, Eilionoir Flynn

This book reviews significant developments at the European level regarding disability law and policy. It provides critical insight in the evolution of European disability law and policy and offers analyses of pressing challenges in a broad range of fields. The core of the Yearbook consists of a review of the preceding year's significant events, as well as policy and legal developments within the institutions of the European Union. It reviews major EU policy developments, studies and other publications, legislative proposals, and case law from the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. The relevant work of other European level bodies in the field of disability - including the OECD and the European Conference of Transport Ministers, especially with respect to emergency planning and disability - is also reviewed. An account is given of the relevant activities of various European level civil society groups, including principally the European Disability Forum, the European Coalition for Community Living, and the Mental Disability Advocacy Group. The Yearbook also includes a bibliography of major publications in the field of European disability law and policy, as well as an annex containing the full text of the most significant documents and policy developments.
