Washington Law Review


On April 24-25, 2008, the University of Washington School of Law had the honor of hosting academics, professionals, students, and representatives of governments and intergovernmental organizations at Framing Legal and Human Rights Strategies for Change: A Case Study of Disability Rights in Asia, a symposium devoted to the human rights of disabled persons in the international realm. Subject matter ranged from specific dilemmas facing the disabled community, such as the rights and treatment of the institutionalized, to broader legal questions like the impact of United Nations conventions on domestic norms. Participants included some of the foremost thinkers in the area of disability rights, and Washington Law Review is proud to make some of their scholarship available to its readers.
