Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the implementation and monitoring process put in place by the disability Convention. It is predicated on the vital need to gain traction between international monitoring and implementation to facilitate 'persuasion' and 'socialisation' to occur. The chapter explores how and why political failure occurs in the disability context. It also focuses on thorny issue of reservations to the Convention which, unless adequately policed, could delay forever the introduction of a positive dynamic of change at the domestic level. The chapter finally analyses the implementation and monitoring regime of the disability Convention and concludes by assessing its potential to trigger real political change where it matters most - within the States Parties themselves.
