There’s Nothing Inclusive About An ‘Exclusive’ University For Disabled People

While the recent promise made by the Union Human Resource Development Minister that a new central university for persons with disabilities will be set up may at first blush come across as a progressive development, it is emblematic of the selfsame biases about the disabled that have hitherto prevented their meaningful integration in society.
What makes this move particularly regressive is the fact that it comes at a time when the magna carta on disability rights, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), and the west have recognised the central role played by inclusive education at all levels in the meaningful integration of persons with disabilities in society.
