Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASDriving the Revision The purpose of revising the Position Statement is to clearlyaffirm occupational therapists’ global commitment to bringa critical, occupational perspective to the work of advancinghuman rights and occupational justice.

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASIntroduction The WFOT fully endorses the United Nations UniversalDeclaration of Human Rights (1948). The purpose of this Position Paper is to state the WorldFederation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) position onhuman rights, which is that abuses of occupational rightsare abuses of human rights that undermine occupationaljustice.

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASHuman and Occupational Rights Occupational therapists around the world are obligated topromote occupational rights as the actualization of humanrights. This obligation requires addressing occupational injustices,initially named as occupational deprivation, occupationalimbalance, occupational marginalisation, and occupationalalienation (Wilcock & Townsend, 2000). An early additionwas occupational apartheid (Kronenberg & Pollard, 2005).

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASHuman and Occupational Rights Occupational rights are secured by identifying andaddressing the capabilities, opportunities and freedom ofchoice for individuals, communities and populations toparticipate in society.

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASOccupational Justice and Injustice Occupational justice requires universal rights to occupationregardless of different forms for different people –according to the cultural, social, and geographical context. Occupational justice is the fulfilment of the right for allpeople to engage in occupations they define as meaningful,that contribute positively to their own well-being and thewell-being of their communities. Occupational injustice is an abuse of occupational andhuman rights.

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASOccupational Justice – requires occupational rights for all to: Participate in a range of occupations that support healthand well-being so that individuals, communities andpopulations can flourish and realize their potential,consistent with the Ottawa Charter ( World HealthOrganization, 1986).

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASOccupational Justice – requires occupational rights for all to: Choose occupations without pressure, force, coercion, orthreats but with acknowledgement that with choicecomes responsibility for what we do (Sen, 2009).

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASOccupational Justice – requires occupational rights for all to: Freely engage in necessary and chosen occupationswithout risk to safety, human dignity or equity.

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASStrategic Action Actions to promote occupational and human rights mustover-ride occupational injustices that are aggravated bypersistent poverty, disease, social discrimination,displacement, natural and man-made disasters, armedconflict, historic disadvantage, and physical and mental illhealth.

Revising the WFOT Position Statement:DRAFTING IDEASStrategic Action Occupational therapists are obligated to enact our ‘clientcentred’ aspiration by collaborating with those experiencingabuses and with diverse partners to eradicate abuses thatundermine occupational justice.
