EU Disability Law and Policy Research: Past, Present and Future?
Round table and Conversation Event
Hosted by the Centre for Disability Studies
12.30-14.00 Tuesday 25 October
Venue: Boardroom (Room 2.42), Liberty Building, University of Leeds
This event will open with a personal reflection on the emergence and development of EU disability law and policy research by Professor Lisa Waddington (European Disability Forum chair, Maastricht University). Lisa was one of the earliest pioneers in this field and continues to be one of its most influential leaders. Professor Mark Priestley (scientific co-ordinator of the EU Academic Network of Experts on Disability) will then give a short response, reflecting on where we are now and on possible future directions. The bulk of the event will take the form of open discussion – including about the possible implications of Brexit in this area, both inside and outside the UK.
