About the series:

European Yearbook of Disability Law

[T]he European Yearbook of Disability Law is a significant undertaking by its editors and contributors. Its continuation in future years offers a very fertile ground for the exploration and development of both principles and legal practice in the European context. […] It is certainly vital as a reference work for those wishing to distill and update their knowledge of the complexity of the European institutional context (particularly for students and teachers of international disability law or of European law).’
Mark Priestley in (2011) Disability & Society, 245.
