Publication TypeJournal Article
AbstractThis paper reviews and analyses the topic of disability, communication rights, digital technology, and policy. In particular, it focusses on the new ways that the human right to communicate has been articulated via international law and policy – especially at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS 2003–2005 and WSIS +10 in 2015) as well as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
