Moving Beyond Boundaries in Disability Studies synopsis
What are the challenges posed by changing transnational trends, plans and movements that affect the lives of persons with disabilities, and what can persons with disabilities, the organizations they represent and their governments do to advance the agenda of self-determination and inclusion? This book combines academics and activists writing to depict the experience and perspective of persons with disabilities regarding a range of contemporary social changes, with a strong focus on ways that people with disabilities and their allies can act to confront disruptive policies and practices. .
Throughout the book, there is an emphasis on the voices of persons with disabilities and their activity as a critical driver of theoretical criticism and practical change. The chapters deal with a wide range of cultural, institutional and personal areas to explore and compete with the borders that people with disabilities seek to cross, from cross-border worker movements in Korea to the experience of day services in England, from persistent and long-standing facts about the wars in Lebanon, Cambodia, and Somalia to the beauty of harmony in Navajo's traditions of understanding disability From group activity to individual participation in the Olympic Games.
This book is recommended for students, researchers and activists interested in disabilitystudies and is directly related to policy makers and practitioners who are in a position to reshape rights,spaces and innovations in response to the priorities that persons with disabilities feel and articulate. It was originally published as a special edition of Disability and Society..
