VITE PEREZ, Miguel Ángel. Disability in Mexico: an interpretation from the social vulnerability point of view. Polis [online]. 2012, vol.8, n.2, pp.153-173. ISSN 2594-0686.

The purpose of this paper is to develop a general discussion of the idea of social vulnerability from a sociological point of view, to explain disability as a social fact. Therefore, it uses data from a survey of private companies and civil organization that directly o indirectly, share perceptions on disability. This allows highlighting disability not as an individual problem or one generated by the absence of regulation or law; but as a result of labor society and loss of universality in welfare state protections.

Keywords : Vulnerability; resignation; disability; labor wage; social integration.
