Lecture 8 from the online course “Disability and Social Inclusion”
Abstract: The sexual sphere of people with disabilities is surrounded by stereotypes and misconceptions but it’s mostly absent from public debates and policies. In this lecture we will examine this topic through the category of fundamental rights which means recognizing sexuality as a relevant component of humanity defined by the principles of equality, self-determination and the promotion of the person’s well-being. The lecture will adopt an interdisciplinary approach, by creating a dialogue between legal knowledge and categories developed in social sciences, specifically sociology and political philosophy.
