Sustainable development and the social inclusion of disabled people
SEER Journal for Labour and Social Affairs in Eastern Europe, 2018, vol. 21, issue 2, 253-260
The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development were adopted by world leaders at an historic UN Summit in 2015 and officially came into force in 2016. The goals are not legally binding, but it is for every state to build its own sustainable development policies and to report on their implementation in practice. This article aims to analyse the recognition of the rights of disabled people and of social inclusion as an important component of sustainable development. It focuses on the situation in the Republic of Macedonia after its ratification of the UN Convention and explores a couple of the paths which have been adopted to ameliorate the position of disabled people in Macedonia and which assist with the country’s responsibility to implement sustainable development goals. The article concludes by identifying several measures focused on legal and practical action that will be necessary to achieve the social inclusion of disabled people and the goals of sustainable development, particularly in the area of social policy and employment.
