Desegregating Equality: Towards A Right to Inclusive Education For Children With Disabilities

In the article Desegregating Equality: Towards A Right to Inclusive Education For Children With Disabilities, Sanjana Srikumar argues that the framework of right to education of children with disabilities must be adequately considered under the right to education and right to equality and not as a separate category of education. To drive this point home, she has discussed the “Doctrine of Separate but Equal” and further relied on jurisprudence from US Supreme Court judgements and International covenants to substantiate her argument.


The paper then draws a comparison on right to inclusive education between Indian legal framework and concludes that the State has positive obligations to ensure meaningful inclusion.
