Abstract

This article has been written to enable an informed debate on the post-2015 development framework with specific reference to issues of human rights and social inclusion relating to gender and disability within the context of development. This article takes a brief look at the history of sustainable international development to assess whether the reasons for current optimism are grounded in evidence of what is feasible and identifies some obstacles to achieving the transformatory changes outlined in the proposed post-2015 development agenda. Issues of visibility and measurement are also discussed with a call for the future agenda to respond to the needs and aspirations of persons with disabilities, rather than assume they want to be where “we” are, and not be left “behind”.
