"'Reasonable Accommodation' and 'Accessibility': Human Rights Instruments Relating to Inclusion and Exclusion in the Labor Market" 6:3 Societies 1

Uses an analysis of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), and the main principles of accessibility and the means of reasonable accommodation - the extent to which they are used to protect the human rights of disabled persons in the workplace depends on whether, and to what degree, the state and its workforce embraces the CRPD's values. However, civil society does not have this same obligation, but have a right to participate in the process of designing an inclusive work environment.
