The following special issue of the (open access) journal Social Inclusion is published: Humanity as a Contested Concept: Relations between Disability and ‘Being Human’, edited by Paul van Trigt, Jacqueline Kool, Alice Schippers

In this issue the way in which the concept of humanity is or must be related to disability is critically investigated from different disciplinary perspectives,  and moreover, situated in the field of disability studies and related to discussions about posthumanism. The argument is made that humanity is a concept that needs to be constantly reflected upon from a disability studies perspective.
