ABSTRACT

This study analyzes research trends related to the rights of persons with disabilities published in Korea since 2000 and conducts network text analysis on the main subjects of research since the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities(CRPD) in 2009. Through this, the status quo and structure of disability rights research were interpreted, and the subdivided trends of research that can be seen through the cluster analysis were identified to suggest the direction of subsequent research. As a result of the study, ‘human rights education' showed a high influence not only on the network map and the overall network map after the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, but also on the cluster analysis results. However, education is mentioned only to a specific age or educational institution, and research on vocational education that is directly related to the lives of persons with disabilities needs to be treated as human rights education. In terms of welfare, the main influence of definitional expressions such as disability or human rights sensitivity, prejudice, and human rights awareness was higher than the law. In addition, discussions about "residential facilities”, which are nodes directly related to the lives of people with disabilities, emerged in earnest in the network after the ratification of the Convention. It seems that the paradigm of the actual state and perception of residential facilities is shifting to the discussion of deinstitutionalization policy. Suggestions for further research include a closer look at how much disability rights have improved since the ratification of the UN CRPD. To this end, it is also meaningful to analyze the feelings of persons with disabilities about human rights violations. On the other hand, various educational programs are required to be improved to cultivate human rights sensitivity. Finally, empirical research on employment and labor rights directly related to the lives of persons with disabilities is needed.
