This book evaluates the national implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in ASEAN. Working with country-specific research teams, the contributors compiled detailed case-studies of CRPD implementation in each country in ASEAN. This book presents a detailed overview of the problem, the relevant literature, and the conceptual framework, and then it explores the implementation of the CRPD in each of the ten countries in Southeast Asia. Details include the factors that influenced each country to ratify the CRPD, the focal point structure of implementation, the independent mechanism established to monitor the implementation, and the civil society organizations involved. This book also evaluates the implications of CRPD implementation for human rights and development in ASEAN, including the degree of institutionalized support for persons with disabilities, the development objectives of the CRPD against the strategic objectives of the ASEAN economic community and the broader ASEAN community, and the way these developments compare with those in other countries and regions. Working with country-specific research teams, the editors compiled detailed case-studies of CRPD implementation on each country in ASEAN. This book presents a detailed overview of the problem and the relevant literature. The contributors also offer conclusions on the research and national and ASEAN-level recommendations for moving forward.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Grand achievement, breaking new ground in the ASEAN Region, and in the global quest for a barrier-free and inclusive world dedicated to communications accessibility for all. A compelling resource for leaders with and without disabilities in the field of public policy. -- Peter D. Blanck, Syracuse University
This exciting project provides crucial and detailed information on national level implementation of disability rights in the ASEAN region. Arriving at the most timely juncture of the CRPD having celebrated its tenth anniversary and the SDGs coming into operation, this volume can help inform DPOs, advocates, and policymakers on best practices and strategies for making disability human rights real in their own communities. -- Michael Ashley Stein, Harvard University
This book is both a treasure trove of information and an inspiration. When Eleanor Roosevelt said human rights begin in small places she meant it. The UN disability treaty innovates by require States to internalize its norms and to take the next step of adopting an effective domestic institutional architecture for change involving Governments, National Human Rights Institutions and civil society. The great merit of this collection of essays is that it tracks how the ASEAN States are steadily making the UN CRPD the foundation of their domestic disability policies. It should interest not just disability scholars and activists but also anyone interested in how international law can socialize States toward right behavior. -- Gerard Quinn, National University of Ireland
