Over the last three decades, a number of reforms have taken place in European social policy with an impact on the opportunities for persons with disabilities to be full and active members of society. The policy reforms have aimed to change the balance between citizens’ rights and duties and the opportunities to enjoy choice and autonomy, live in the community and participate in political decision-making processes of importance for one’s life. How do the reforms influence the opportunities to exercise Active Citizenship? This volume presents the findings from the first cross-national comparison of how persons with disabilities reflexively make their way through the world, pursuing their own interests and values. The volume considers how their experiences, views and aspirations regarding participation vary across Europe. Based on retrospective life-course interviews, the volume examines the scope for agency on the part of persons with disabilities, i.e. the extent to which men and women with disabilities are able to make choices and pursue lives they have reasons to value. Drawing on structuration theory and the capability approach, the volume investigates the opportunities for exercising Active Citizenship among men and women in nine European countries. The volume identifies the policy implications of a process-oriented and multi-dimensional approach to Active Citizenship in European disability policy. It will appeal to policymakers and policy officials, as well as to researchers and students of disability studies, comparative social policy, international disability law and qualitative research methods.

Changing Social Attitudes Toward Disability

Whilst legislation may have progressed internationally and nationally for disabled people, barriers continue to exist, of which one of the most pervasive and ingrained is attitudinal. Social attitudes are often rooted in a lack of knowledge and are perpetuated through erroneous stereotypes, and ultimately these legal and policy changes are ineffectual without a corresponding attitudinal change. This unique book provides a much needed, multifaceted exploration of changing social attitudes toward disability. Adopting a tripartite approach to examining disability, the book looks at historical, cultural, and education studies, broadly conceived, in order to provide a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to the documentation and endorsement of changing social attitudes toward disability. Written by a selection of established and emerging scholars in the field, the book aims to break down some of the unhelpful boundaries between disciplines so that disability is recognised as an issue for all of us across all aspects of society, and to encourage readers to recognise disability in all its forms and within all its contexts. This truly multidimensional approach to changing social attitudes will be important reading for students and researchers of disability from education, cultural and disability studies, and all those interested in the questions and issues surrounding attitudes toward disability.

This short, accessible text takes on the global and pervasive phenomenon of hate crimes and hypothesizes potential fixes. Iganski and Levin detail evidence of hate violence in the 21st century, particularly religious hatred, ethnic, racial and xenophobic hatred, violence on the basis of sexual orientation and sexual identity, disablist violence, and violence against women, using the most recently published data from cross-national surveys produced by international organizations. This is an ideal addition to any course on social problems, violence, or hate crimes.

Hotly contested, normality remains a powerful, complex category in contemporary law and culture. What is little realized are the ways in which disability underpins and shapes the operation of norms and the power dynamics of normalization. This pioneering collection explores the place of law in political, social, scientific and biomedical developments relating to disability and other categories of �abnormality�. The contributors show how law produces cultural meanings, norms, representations, artefacts and expressions of disability, abnormality and normality, as well as how law responds to and is constituted by cultures of disability. The collection traverses a range of contemporary legal and political issues including human rights, mercy killing, reproductive technologies, hate crime, policing, immigration and disability housing. It also explores the impact and ongoing legacies of historical practices such as eugenics and deinstitutionalization. Of interest to a wide range of scholars working on normality and law, the book also creates an opening for critical scholars and activists engaged with other marginalized and denigrated categories, notably contesting institutional violence in the context of settler colonialism, neoliberalism and imperialism, to engage more richly and politically with disability. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Continuum journal.

Und doch steht er eines Tages auf und geht fort. Nicht, weil er möchte, sondern weil er muss, weil ihn etwas treibt, das stärker ist als sein Körper, sein Geist und sein Wille. Er macht sich auf den Weg hinaus ins Freie, ohne Rücksicht auf Wetter, Familie oder Job, läuft oft meilenweit, bevor er wieder zu sich kommt. Und er kann sich nicht erklären, warum er zerstört, was er am meisten liebt.

Gesundheit ist wichtig und gehört offenbar zum Leben dazu – sie scheint inklusive. In der Behindertenarbeit sind Gesundheit und deren Förderung noch recht neue Themen. Der Sammelband zielt darauf, Ansätze zur Förderung von Gesundheit aus verschiedenen wissenschaftlichen und praktischen Perspektiven zu eruieren und die Idee von ressourcenorientierter Gesundheitsförderung für unterschiedliche Handlungsfelder der Behindertenarbeit nutzbar zu machen. Exemplarisch wird die Gruppe der Menschen mit Lernschwierigkeiten fokussiert. Menschen mit Lernschwierigkeiten sind nicht per se krank, können aber als gesundheitlich vulnerable bezeichnet werden. Die Befähigung zu einem höheren Maß an Selbstbestimmung über eigene gesundheitsbezogene Belange ist ein zentrales Anliegen von Gesundheitsförderung. In den Beiträgen des Sammelbandes wird diskutiert, wie Gesundheit im Spannungsfeld von eigenen Vorstellungen und äußeren Lebensbedingungen entstehen kann.
