Example text

A constitution can provide courts with a useful tool for the elaboration of standards on gender equality and disability rights. Article 41(5) of the FDRE sets out the States responsibility for the provision of necessary rehabilitation and support services for persons with disabilities: The state shall, within its available means, allocate resources to provide rehabilitation and assistance to the physically and mentally disabled. 4 that all International Human Rights instruments ratified by Ethiopia are considered to be an integral part of the law of the land.

Loeb The failure of states and repercussions felt by their victimized citizens continue to feed the global press and are continually the subject of global concern. Nowhere in the documentation, however, is the plight of the disabled person elucidated – neither in terms of the disabling consequences of migration nor the life situation of the disabled person left behind in a failed state. A search of the literature that combines disability and failed or fragile state brings forth nothing. Independently, disability and state failure are factors that tend to marginalize people.

This general lack of awareness, or oversight, in the literature is noteworthy, especially since migration (as a component of state failure) may compound marginalization for persons with disability. I now consider two quite different cases of how persons with disabilities are affected by state failure: the case of South Africa as it emerged from the failure of apartheid and the case of Zimbabwe and the challenges facing those struggling to survive in a failing state. 1 The Example of South Africa: From Apartheid to Reunification – and Disability The history of apartheid and its downfall provides an example of the power of a failed state to suppress a people on the basis of race and to compound that suppression on the basis of disability.
