In war times and conflict situation. The state faces challenges to enforce laws, occasioned by the breakdown of law and security. How does this situation affect persons with disabilities? Violence, vulnerability, personal security. Does this arise from dis trust of the law? As an agent of social change, the law and in this instance the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability (CRPD) is one of the grounds for recognizing the right of every child but particularly with respect to persons living with disability (PLWD). This paper sets out to interrogate the philosophy and impact of the CRPD. It examined to what extent PLWD can continue to Trust or Distrust the law in protecting their rights in conflict situations.
