Fundamental Principles of Disability

  • Michael Oliver


The purpose of giving this chapter a similar title to the Fundamental Principles document is because it is deliberately derivative of it. I, and many other disabled people, openly acknowledge our debt to the document in the way it shaped our own understanding of disability. The document has never been widely available and with the demise of the Union in 1991, it will become increasingly difficult to obtain.
