Abstract
Based on an ontology that combines structuralism and constructivism, this paper aims to investigate the construction of disability in Vietnam. More specifically, it analyzes the conceptualization of disability in Vietnamese legal documents through the perspective of disability theory. The analysis is carried out by using critical discourse analysis (CDA) as developed by Norman Fairclough and examines the power structures, hegemonic discourses and ideologies surrounding the construction of disability in the legal documents. Ultimately, the aim is to contribute to an awareness of and discussion surrounding relationships of power, specifically concerning disability in Vietnam.
