Disability & Justice: The Capabilities Approach in Practice is an interdisciplinary examination of the practical application of the capabilities approach viewed through the lens of the experience of disability. Careful and critical examination of vital foundational concepts is undertaken prior to contextualizing the experience of disability and how we might begin to promote an inclusive society through an application of the capabilities approach.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Disability and Justice: The Capabilities Approach in Practice is a lucid, concise and compelling philosophical discussion of disability, and its significance in political theory. Christopher Riddle has produced useful and plausible arguments with an aim to promote justice for people with disabilities. -- Simo P. Vehmas, Stockholm University
Disability and Justice: The Capabilities Approach in Practice provides a compelling case that the capabilities approach is at once the best we have and not yet satisfactory as a theory that addresses the experiences of people with disabilities within its core conception of justice. Drawing on a nuanced understanding of the cutting edge of capability theory and models of disability, Christopher Riddle not only enriches the dialogue between these areas, but also makes distinctive theoretical advances in each. The book will be of particular interest to readers working on the measurement of capabilities, the risk of stigmatization in the implementation of egalitarian policies, and issues of justice and disability more generally. -- Christopher R. Lowry, University of Waterloo
