This timely Research Handbook provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging exploration of relevant developments concerning disability rights at EU level. It also looks beyond the EU, focusing on how disability has been relevant in EU external relations. In addition, the Handbook considers the interface between EU disability law and Council of Europe law.

Expert contributors address key questions related to the scope and impact of EU disability law, examining its compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the gaps that remain to be filled in implementation by the EU. Analyzing the most important and recent developments in EU disability law, the chapters in this Handbook trace its evolution, and assess the extent to which disability rights are protected and promoted in various strands of EU law and policy. The Handbook highlights the connections, overlaps and inconsistencies which exist across those strands.

This thought-provoking Research Handbook will be a valuable resource for scholars; researchers and students of disability law, EU law and international law; as well as practitioners, policy makers, civil society organizations and European think tanks engaged with the fields of EU and international disability law.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook offers a truly comprehensive and insightful analysis of the diverse ways in which EU law affects people with disabilities. Its impressive breadth of vision means that this book will be an essential point of reference for all those who seek to understand better the interaction of law and disability in a European context. It explains the positive steps taken in recent years, but it reminds us of the long road to inclusion that remains to be travelled.’
– Mark Bell, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

This timely volume is a roadmap for diverse stakeholders navigating the unprecedented challenges facing the EU disability agenda arising from the global health and economic emergency.’
