Abstract

The main purpose of this essay is to compare Sweden and Hungary’s implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).  The study focuses on the countries´ perception of disability and how these perceptions are shown through implementation of CRPD. The essential subject throughout the essay is questions about disability, and how these questions have been interpreted in various health-related fields in both Sweden and Hungary. 

     In general, significance is attached to the construction of the concept of disability and how these concepts are applied to the implementation work of Sweden and Hungary.  Furthermore, similarities and differences between the countries are analyzed through Constructivism. The method of this essay is comparative, and the research questions, connected to the purpose of this essay, are important tools to analyze the data as they constitute the ground for the research. As a result, the method is used to draw attention to each country’s strategy to implement the CRPD. To sum up, the comparative analysis of this essay shows that there were patterns in both Sweden and Hungary that indicated that there were more similarities than differences between the countries on how they approached the Convention regarding disability issues.
