Abstract

Humanitarian scholars have remained concerned with the devastating harm and destructive effects associated with the new means and methods of conducting armed hostilities. Little research has been done in exploring the social-economic impact warfare has on the rights of vulnerable groups. In this case persons with mental and physical disabilities are more prone to warfare’s changing and challenging environments during and after the end of armed hostilities. There is, however, inadequate research depicting how physical or even mental disabilities could be a probable consequence of armed conflicts. Mixed research methods have been used in exploring themes arising from the war-disability relationship. These themes relate to how armed conflicts have caused and impacted the person with disabilities. The case study model is applied by refereeing chosen examples of armed conflicts. Radom case studies have been used.
