From interdiction to full legal capacity


PDF Full Text

Abstract

Interdict and allow, a verbal antinomy with a conceptual distance that constitutes semantic extremes with deep meaning that humanity has gone through, from the enormous prohibition or interdiction of the legal capacity of people with disabilities, to the full permission of the exercise and enjoy your rights. In search of real legal equality, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities introduced for “all members of the human family” (Preamble), a notable advance within the plexus of human rights, including dignity. With the interest that those postulates are fulfilled to the highest degree, and do not become empty or meaningless statements, through this essay some formal and practical deficits will become visible, in order to formulate recommendations for the exercise of the full legal capacity.
