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
