The issue of the right to an adequate standard of living has received renewed scrutiny in recent years. Further, the rights of persons with disabilities have become the focus of a number of international instruments in an attempt to improve the living conditions of persons with disabilities. The intersection of these two areas of international law is vital in the quest to improve the socio-economic circumstances of persons with disabilities by individual states.  This article provides a contextualised understanding of the concept of an adequate standard of living specific to persons with disabilities.
