Overview

The emergence of a decentralized, fragmented, and low-cost Internet opened up possibilities for persons with disabilities to lead an independent and inclusive life, which had been denied to them in the physical world. However, despite advancement in technology persons with disabilities have been excluded. With the digital divide opening up before them, there is a danger that social injustice faced by persons with disabilities in the physical world may be replayed in virtual space. Since the Internet is largely dominated by corporations, this digital divide cannot be bridged without questioning their role. This book explores the interplay between human rights of persons with disabilities and corporate obligation towards the creation of an inclusive and accessible Internet.
