“Dangerous liaisons”. Critical reflections on vulnerability, disability and law**: The attitude of the disability rights advocates towards vulnerability is extremely complex, given the ambiguity of this concept, which is used in the process of “othering”, as well as of in-cluding people with disabilities. In this essay, I will refer to some of the main contemporary debates concerning vulnerability widespread in the field of social-sciences, in order to verify their usefulness for the instances of persons with disabilities. To this aim, I will particularly consider the literature pertaining to feminist and disability studies, trying to highlight simi-larities and divergencies between them.

Abstract

“Dangerous liaisons”. Critical reflections on vulnerability, disability and law**: The attitude of the disability rights advocates towards vulnerability is extremely complex, given the ambiguity of this concept, which is used in the process of “othering”, as well as of in-cluding people with disabilities. In this essay, I will refer to some of the main contemporary debates concerning vulnerability widespread in the field of social-sciences, in order to verify their usefulness for the instances of persons with disabilities. To this aim, I will particularly consider the literature pertaining to feminist and disability studies, trying to highlight simi-larities and divergencies between them. In the second part, I will focus on the legal debate concerning vulnerability, evaluating to what extent it is helpful for the recognition of the full legal subjectivity of persons with disabilities.
