This chapter introduces the book and provides important context for all the subsequent chapters. In particular, it explains the aim of the research presented in the book and situates it within the emerging literature on comparative international (human rights) law, as well as the literature on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It also sets out the methodology used and explains how the book is structured, with jurisdiction-specific chapters, and chapters providing comparative analysis across jurisdictions illuminating the differences and similarities in the interpretation and use of the CRPD by domestic courts and judges.
