Abstract [en]

The study investigates recent efforts made by the United Nations to ensure the participation

of persons with disabilities in the designing of a post-2015 development framework

that will build on the progress catalysed by the Millennium Development Goals. Anchored

in the participatory development theory, the study examines the consultation process

held between 2012 and 2013, analysing the correlation between the extensive online

consultation and the Open Working Groups’ proposal for Sustainable Development

Goals. Through a qualitative content analysis the study aims to investigate how well the

contributions of the online consultation have been included in the proposal. The study

finds that while themes expressed by persons with disabilities can be identified within the

proposal, only a few directly articulate the details. Out of the themes expressed by persons

with disabilities, several are unable to find in the Sustainable Development Goals and did

not have a strong linkage with persons with disabilities. The reflective discussion of the

study elaborates the reasons behind the empirical findings and states how the contributions

have been included, indicating that “real” participation of persons with disabilities

has taken place in the design stage.
