The book asks all South Africans to continue thinking about and researching the rights of disabled people, to continue to build a more inclusive society, and to take on board the slogan of Disabled People South Africa, ‘Nothing about us, without us!’. The book makes it clear how far we have come since the White Paper on the Integrated National Disability Strategy (INDS) – it is very unlikely that such a document would have been published even ten years ago. It also makes it clear that we still have a long way to go, in relation to the challenges of unemployment, and in making transport and social services truly accessible.
