Opportunities, challenges & tensions: linking the ageing and disability rights agendas
Research with older and disabled people
Thursday 27th September 2012
A good evidence base is critical to the development of successful policy and practice. This seminar will focus on differing research techniques and interpreting research for policy agendas/knowledge exchange with older and disabled people.
Keynote speakers include:
- Dr Felicity Callard, Centre for Medical Humanities, Durham University;
- Dr Ian Sydney, Senior Researcher, Age UK, Lancashire;
- Dr Susan Venn, Co-Director, Centre for Research on Ageing and Gender, Surrey University;
- Prof. Nick Watson, Chair of Disability Studies, School of Social and Political Sciences, Glasgow University.
Facilitated by some of the key thinkers, policy-makers and activists in this field, this seminar aims to open up opportunities for original and innovative debate on key issues for policy and practice in the UK. It is anticipated that these debates will also have wider resonance for the developed world.
