The ratification by Spain of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities has meant abandoning the medical or rehabilitation model and
accepting a socia l protection model, in which the principle of non-discrimi-
nation of persons whose capacity has to be modified prevails.
Judges and magistrates, through the contentious jurisdiction, are the only
ones legitimized to carr y out such modifications, curating being established
as the most suitable means for this because it is a flexible institution designed
especially for cases of partial disabilities.
However, having been declared constitutional by the High Court the current
existing regulations, respect for the spirit of the international standar d
makes it necessary that in the future the Spanish legislator attend the ac-
credited doctrinal voices that demand reforms that achieve grea ter stream-
lining procedures, new terminologies, and a greater specialization of all the
professionals involved in the capacity procedures, among others.
