African Disability Rights Yearbook

This is a peer-reviewed journal to focus exclusively on disability as human rights on the African continent.

The Yearbook, which is projected to appear annually, is set out in three sections. Section A contains academic articles: Section B consists of country-based research, charting recent developments on disability rights legislation, case law and policy developments in selected African states; and Section C deals with relevant developments in the African Union (AU) and African sub-regional organisations.

South Africa failing the disabled

Employment equity interventions and policies have not improved employment prospects for South Africans living with disabilities, according to the University of Johannesburg’s Centre for Social Development in Africa (CSDA).
