Speaker information

Dr Maria Kett, UCL Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre

According to current estimates, there are around 650 million persons with disabilities globally, yet they have been largely absent from many of the discussions and decisions that determine their lives. To celebrate International Disability Day on 3 December this lecture will examine some of the current debates taking place within academia, international development practice, and at policy level about this issue; examine why these voices have been missing for so long, and discuss how an emerging global consensus has begun to see disability as a key issue in international development and global human rights.

Note: This lecture will have a sign interpreter, there is also an induction loop in the theatre so please switch hearing aids to the ‘T’ position.
