Active Citizenship and Disability in Europe. Volume 2
Presenting research from the first major comparative and cross-national study of active citizenship and disability in Europe, this book analyses the consequences of ongoing changes in Europe – what opportunities do persons with disabilities have to exercise Active Citizenship? Volume 2 analyses how men and women with disabilities reflexively make their way through the world, pursuing their own interests and values. It considers how their experiences, views and aspirations regarding participation vary across Europe, and draws out the implications of the findings for future disability policy in Europe and beyond.
