The human rights model of disability
says that disabled people cannot be denied any human right based on their
impairment, maybe the right to marry, the right to sign a contract, the right to
vote, and all these rights are denied to many people with disabilities even today
in most countries, if they have for instance an intellectual disability or
what we call a psycho-social disability and the CRPD says this is not
possible anymore because it is a form of discrimination and the CRPD also says
that in order to make equality real we have to adopt what we call an inclusive
equality model
