Russian government policy is to organise services for disabled people, but these intentions are not enough. Implementation depends on organisational, financial and legal aspects. It is possible to change the present system of assistance now. For this purpose it is necessary to create a uniform information environment for and about disabled people. The authors present a clear and constructive program for practical realisation of an information system in one social sphere - rehabilitation of disabled people.

Regional welfare system developments in Russia: community social services

Author:
THOMSON Kate
Journal article citation:
Social Policy and Administration, 36(2), April 2002, pp.105-122.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Micro-level studies of welfare service developments are largely absent from the literature on Russian social policy issues, which tends to concentrates on macro-level social security arrangements. This paper highlights the emergence of community-based social services in the post-1991 era, examining their development in two provincial Russian cities, based on an empirical study carried out in 1998. The paper adds to a growing literature which seeks to understand "welfare systems" from the perspective of welfare services by looking at their use by, and relevance for, disabled children regarded as having learning difficulties, and their families. The empirical data indicate the shape of "new" services in the field sites, the means by which such institutions were maintained and their integration into the welfare sphere as a whole. Their development and maintenance at the local level is explained in part by socio-economic, political and administrative factors in these regions. By highlighting the various factors that help to maintain welfare provision and drive change at the local level, the case studies indicate the possible shape of future welfare developments in Russia as a whole.

New citizenship by new ways of economic integration

Authors:
HERRMANN Peter, STEPHENSON Svetlana, GEOGHEGAN Martin
Journal article citation:
Social Work in Europe, 9(2), 2002, pp.23-36.
Publisher:
Russell House

Discusses the reasons behind the crisis of the state, the new forms of citizenship that are being constructed through new ways of economic integration and how this relates to the crisis. Examines the findings of research on projects working with people who are on the margins of accepted citizenship. The first project focuses on the activities of Russian non-government organisations working with vulnerable groups and the second looks at work with Travellers in Ireland. The author argues that NGOs may now be reaching their limits in expanding the experience of citizenship.

Perspectives of inclusive education in Russia

Authors:
LARSKAIA-SMIRNOVA Elena, ROMANOV Pavel
Journal article citation:
European Journal of Social Work, 10(1), 2007, pp.89-105.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

This paper discusses the issues of exclusion and inclusion of children with disabilities in educational policies. The background and context for inclusion in Russia is described, with a short overview of the history of special education and with the emphasis on the current legislative conditions for inclusion. The article analyzes peculiarities of the hidden curriculum in a Russian boarding school for children with disabilities, and discusses the ways in which special education constructs the students' identities. In particular, practices of socialization in an educational institution for children with motor impairments are considered using the qualitative methodology of ethnographic observation and interviews. In addition, the attitudes of contemporary mainstream school students towards the idea of inclusive education are explored and a case of integration of a disabled child into a regular school setting is considered. Finally, the authors outline some policy recommendations and the prospects for inclusion.
