Centre for Human Rights launches African Disability Rights Yearbook (AYDR)
The African Disability Rights Yearbook breaks new ground in
disability scholarship. Coming in the wake of the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, it is the first
peer-reviewed journal to focus exclusively on disability as human rights
on the African continent.
It provides an annual forum for scholarly analysis on issues pertaining to the human rights of persons with disabilities.
It is also a source for country-based reports as well as commentaries on recent developments in the field of disability rights in the African region.
