DST 502

Disability and the State

This course begins with students' day-to-day experience of "policy", moving towards deeper examination of the underlying values, interests and institutions that shape social and disability policy. Students are guided to make comparisons and connections, looking at historical responses to disability and at contemporary programs and services. Readings and online presentations explore what policy means, why it matters, and what processes and strategies are activated by people with disabilities to influence, shape and reform social policy.
