Disability, Spaces and Places of Policy Exclusion synopsis
Geographic areas of disability have become a basic research priority for many disability scientists and geographers. This edited group, which includes the work of leading international disability researchers, seeks to expand the current geographical framework that works in the area of disability. Providing a comprehensive and accurate study of disability and spatial processes of exclusion and inclusion of the disabled, the book uniquely combines insights from disabilitystudies, spatial geographies and social policy to explore how to shape spatial factors, reduce or strengthen policy towards, and experiences of people with disabilities.
The first part, which is divided into two parts, is divided into the main concepts that have emerged in the field of disabilitygeography and its relation to new political systems. New and emerging concepts in this field are critically explored for their importance in framing disability in theory.
Section II provides an in-depth study of the experience of people with disabilities to change landscapes at the onset of emerging disabilitypolicy systems. It addresses how different actors and stakeholders, such as Governments, social welfare agencies, families and persons with disabilities, can discuss these landscapes in the new circumstances defined by changing political systems.
More importantly, chapters teach the meaning of living to change the spatial relationships of the disabled. Based on recent empirical research, with a global focus, each chapter reveals how to challenge or undermine political areas through the spatial realities faced by people with disabilities, and to expand existing understandings of disability. On the other hand, the book supports readers to learn about future policy directions and processes that enable people with disabilities, their rights and their participation.
This important work will be invaluable reading for students and researchers involved in disability,geography and social policy.
