Differentemente. Per un’etica dell’accomodamento ragionevole

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Differently. For a reasonable accommodation ethic

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


“Reasonable accommodation” is a fundamental term for The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2007). If the aim is to promote “the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities” (Article 1), the category of “reasonable accommodation” emerges immediately as the reflective means of this purpose. The aim of the present article is to reflect on the ethical meaning of reasonable accommodation, in the light of a reflection around the relationship between equality and human difference. In fact, equality as fairness, has nothing to do with egalitarianism. The moral ideal of equality requires, on the contrary, an ethic able to evaluate the topic of differences, going beyond the theme of gender diversity (male/female), in order to think directly about the issues of disability. The result is the possibility of responding to the indifference that in the age of techno-sciences tends to become, from a simple fact, a true antithetical culture to the logic of social justice and love.
