Conceptualising Disability€– the Scope of the Convention ╇ It should be noted that the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities adopts a definition of disability based on the Â�understanding that disability is not solely the result of a medical impairment, but also stems from societal barriers to participation. 15 The use of this definition could also encourage further participation of people with disabilities in the planning of social service programmes and indeed in general policy making.

Rather, the focus on a particular jurisdiction with some unique innovations in its national disability strategy can serve as a useful baseline for other countries interested in implementing the success factors discussed. ╇Â�Content and Structure of the Book This book is divided into four main parts. The first part contains a global comparative study of implementation and monitoring mechanisms for national disability strategies in light of the principles and processes envisaged by the CRPD. 10 The international study conducted in Chapter 1 focuses primarily on the four key principles of the CRPD€– dignity, autonomy, participation, and solidarity€– and examines guidelines for developing national disability strategies that are derived from the drafting process of the Convention, as well as those that appear in the final text.
