THE DEVELOPMENT OF RIGHTS-BASED SOCIAL POLICY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION: THE EXAMPLE OF DISABILITY RIGHTS

D. Mabbett

Journal of Common Market Studies, vol.43, 2005, p.97-120

Article analyses the development of EU disability policy and the harmonisation of the social rights enjoyed by disabled people across the Union. Within the EU, rights may be implemented in member states through judgments of the European Court of Justice which are binding on all and through programmes in which rights are expressed as goals which member states agree to pursue.
