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.
