Chapter 12 An interdisciplinary call for action
Restricted access

This concluding chapter largely stems from the ideas of academics from various countries and disciplines that were proposed and discussed at a meeting at Monash University's Prato campus in Tuscany, Italy; an integral part of this book's progress. The chapter also reflects positively upon the interdisciplinary work and insights that are evidenced in the preceding chapters. It is noted that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD, 2006), the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC, 1989), and the Optional Protocol Against Torture and Other Inhuman or Degrading Treatment and Punishment (OPCAT, 2006) are three key documents that will inform long overdue reforms that acknowledge, and respond to, the human rights of all people living with neurodisabilities. This book's editors jointly call for positive, holistic outcomes for disadvantaged groups in society, especially people with neurodisabilities, who too often find themselves in unsuitable and unjust criminal justice systems.
