Abstract and Keywords
This chapter focuses on people with disabilities among displaced populations and argues that disability issues have mostly been neglected within displacement-focused humanitarian programmes. It first outlines conceptual models of disability and considers disability experiences in displacement and forced migration settings. It then examines how disability affects access to durable solutions—voluntary repatriation, resettlement, and local integration—and assesses asylum procedures for disabled persons before concluding with some recommendations for future research and practice.
