Abstract

Pursuant to resolution 16/15, the Human Rights Council (HRC) held its fourth interactive debate on the rights of persons with disabilities on 1st March 2012. The paper is partly furthered upon the theme of a panel that was formed by the Human Rights Council in 2012 on the participation of persons with disabilities in political and public life. This research is discussing the benefits of encouraging complementarity in interpreting the objectives of Article 26 in conjunction with Article 29 in the aftermath of the armed conflict situations envisaged in Article 11 of the Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). According this paper critically is analysing the obligations to provide habitation and rehabilitation systems for aiding the participation of persons with disabilities in public and political life. That analysis is carried out under the prisms of CRPD States that are either undergoing or recovering from situations of armed conflicts (Article 26 in conjunction with 29). This research is bearing in mind that level of devastation and destructive violence are peculiar to the periods subsequent to occurrence of the armed conflicts in article 11 of the CRPD. This paper notes that the presence and absence armed conflicts across the State parties to the CRPD that have signed up to the above obligations must be explored to create a changed and variably challenges context for the affected States such as Syria, Southern Sudan among others. This paper suggest that in designing plans for post armed conflict recovery, the need to reconstruct pubic services (schools, hospitals, public housing, transport) in a manner that is strategic enough to consider the resettling and rehabilitation of civilians or returning refugees with disabilities. The application of inclusiveness ideologies to such recovery and post conflict construction projects must be seen as key to enabling persons with disabilities to participate in public and political life in the aftermath of armed conflicts.
