Publication year:
294p., bibliog.
Place of publication:

Features 15 original contributions from leading disabled activists, international development planners and practitioners, and researchers working on disability issues in 'developing countries' (the majority world). The book asks: What do we know about disability in a global context? What are the issues that face disabled people, their families, and those who work with them in 'developing countries'? What happens when western ideas and practices around disability migrate to non-western settings? Issues explored include: strategies for social change; empowerment and rights; disabled people's organisations; community-based rehabilitation; inclusive education; cultural perceptions of impairment and disability; disability services in historical perspective; and the difficulties inherent in disability action and research in the majority world. Contributions are based on work in a wide range of countries including: Afghanistan, Jordan, Lesotho, Nepal, China and India.
