Understanding the Lived Experiences of Persons with Disabilities in Nine Countries

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.

Public lecture: Swedish Disability Rights Activists claim „Full Participation Now!”

Public lecture by Marie Sépulchre, PhD student, Sociology Department, Uppsala University, Sweden

Swe­dish Disa­bi­li­ty Rights Activists claim ’Full Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on Now!’ – Con­struc­tions of citi­zenship by dis­abled peop­le in Swe­den

Time: Thurs­day, 23 Novem­ber 2017, 12:00 – 13:30, Room: S 163

This lec­tu­re explo­res the citi­zenship of dis­abled peop­le in Swe­den. The first part traces the deve­lop­ment of the legal frame­work out­lining the citi­zenship rights for per­sons with disa­bi­li­ties in Swe­den. The second part exami­nes the blog ‘Full Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on Now’, which was initia­ted by esta­blished disa­bi­li­ty rights activists in Swe­den. The lec­tu­re dis­cus­ses how the­se Swe­dish disa­bi­li­ty rights activists aim to chal­len­ge a situa­ti­on that they defi­ne as ‘second-class citi­zenship’ and aspi­re to ‘full citi­zenship’.
