The Rights of Mentally Disabled Persons: An International Human Rights Approach

Adv. Dr. Priya Nair V.

Abstract: Over the last half century, the importance of human rights has been recognized progressively by the international community, commencing with the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 and followed periodically by human rights conventions which more specifically address certain aspects of human rights. At present, no convention addresses the special concerns of individuals with disabilities or the subgroup of people with mental disabilities. On November 28, 2001, however, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for the creation of an Ad Hoc Committee ?to consider proposals for a comprehensive and integral international convention to protect and promote the rights and dignity of persons with disabilities.
