Raise the visibility of non-inclusive transport, the United Nations Human Rights Council would do well to consider establishing a special procedure related to mobility in the context of the antidiscrimination norm and the economic, social and cultural rights to which most of the world’s countries have committed themselves.
Ted Schrecker is a political scientist by background, and moved from Canada to take up a position at Durham University in June, 2013 before transferring to Newcastle University with colleagues from Durham's School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health in 2017. The video of his inaugural lecture at Durham (2014) is available here. His research interests focus on the political economy of health inequalities, especially as they are affected by neoliberal globalisation, and on issues at the interface of science, ethics, law and public policy. Earlier in his working life, he spent many years involved with environmental policy and law as a legislative researcher, academic and consultant; he is now returning to these issues by way of the emerging field of global health policy in the Anthropocene.
