Abstract: Basically, Social Model perceives disability as a consequence of and the resultant damage
(effect) of the influence of environment, attitudes and society on the maximum participation of
people with impairments in social activities. This view, thus, exposes and marks the foundation
of the vulnerability of People with Disability (PWDs) who suffer during the period of relative
peace, violent and post violent conflicts. Essentially therefore, if these deprived group are
allowed to actively participate in decision making and discussions on issues of security
management and peace building in any community; if they are recognized, valued and respected
in and by community members; if government policies can be inclusive of and accessible to
them; if institutions (formal and informal) are strengthened to prevent and prosecute (violent)
conflict instigators and insurgents, then PWDs will be less vulnerable in relative peace, violent
conflict and post-conflict period. Hence, vulnerability of people with disabilities is both a cause
and effect of the marginalisation and discrimination faced by the group in daily life which is
consequent upon the community perception and attitude.
