Abstract
This paper provides a social model of disability inspired analysis of the philosophy of independent living and its implications for policy developments for disabled people in the United Kingdom. It is argued that the policy changes needed for disabled people’s meaningful emancipation pose a direct challenge to current thinking on disability policy in particular and capitalist development in general.
