Disability Human Rights Law is an emerging field that this Special Issue will help to shape. It is an amalgamation of human rights law, disability studies, and disability rights law. It views rights in novel way, opening a new line of scholarly inquiry. It sees rights as they apply to the individual, with regard to the individual’s particular abilities, needs, and circumstances.
This special edition of SACQ seeks to explore impediments to social justice advancement towards real prison reform globally. Emerging societies Like South Africa and marginalized communities in the developed world like North America and Europe continue to bear the brunt of incarceration, violent policing and other forms of institutionalisation. Globalization of incarceration and penitentiary systems in both the developing and the developed world do nothing to challenge criminalization of poverty. Instead, progress is marked by advances in incarceration technologies.
