, : Can Disability Code Activation Promote Sustainable Development in Egypt... After the Arab Spring?. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 217: 605-614

In January 2011, Egypt followed Tunisia in its Uprisal against the ruling oppressive regimes in search for democracy, freedom and better living conditions. The movement, later known as the Arab Spring, had implications on the country's economic and political systems. Hence, the need to adopt Sustainable Development strategies and that in order to ensure all people well being, and the implementation of their human rights. This would only be realized when the built environment would become accessible to vulnerable people, as well as to persons with disabilities and would enable them to participate and be included in various living activities. This paper reviews the impact of the Egyptian disability code, that was published 2003, and how its activation could help to provide the environment that supports persons with disabilities, and allows their integration. Key Words: Disability Code; Sustainable Development; Arab Spring; Accessible Enabling Environment, People with Disabilities Integration.
