Abstract

The thesis deals with models of disability that UN Human Rights Treaty Bodies (UNHRTBs) and Regional Human Rights Systems (RHRSs) apply in relation obligations of protecting persons with disabilities before during and after situations of armed conflict. (the three-stage cycle) are examined by this research. That is important in establishing if those models of disability used for disability vary across the three-stage cycle. The three-stage cycle relates to situations before, during and after armed conflict. Such a transition relates to how the protection of persons with disabilities changes from the perspective of a peaceful State, to that of an armed conflict affected State. The thesis uses UNHRTBs and RHRSs as global and regional mechanisms by investigating models of disability that those mechanisms use to guide and direct States through elaborating obligations that States use towards persons with disabilities at the different phases of the three-stage cycle. The research uses models of disability to identify the possible causes of discrepancies in the protection of persons with disabilities such as an increase in their vulnerability. In addition to the limited availability of State resources that compromises the capability of a State to execute the obligations envisioned by UNHRTBs and RHRSs especially during the armed conflict and post conflict stages of the cycle.
