“Rights Are Not Justice: A Case Study in Campus Segregation and How University Accessibility Policies Do Violence To the Spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act”

“Rights Are Not Justice” is the product of a community facilitated project in public sociology and critical disability studies. This project outlines who and what is at stake when a campus elevator/building is inaccessible by uncovering the answers to thefollowing three questions: 1) who is affected by building segregation; 2) which bureaucratic structures maintain or operationalize the necessary conditions for inaccessibility; and, 3) what ideas work to organize these structures?
