Vol. 12 No. 1 (2016): Disability Inclusive Development Part 1
Special Issue on Knowledge for disability inclusive development. Disability inclusive development requires negotiated understanding and synthesis of ‘multiple knowledges’ (Brown 2011) to address the multiple forms of disadvantage experienced by people with disabilities in diverse settings. To this end, contributors to this special issue share a concern with various ways in which different types of knowledge are recognized, valued and shared by different stakeholders in the development process, to generate new insights and evidence to inform policy and program planning to address disability-related disadvantage in different contexts. The purpose is to enhance understanding of how we can create fertile conditions for insightful learning and meaningful action among all stakeholders concerned with disability and development who have different ways of knowing and experiencing the world.
