There are over thirty million disabled people in Russia and Eastern
Europe, yet their voices are rarely heard in scholarly studies of
life and well-being in the region. This book brings together new
research by internationally recognised local and non-native
scholars in a range of countries in Eastern Europe and the former
Soviet Union. It covers, historically, the origins of legacies that
continue to affect well-being and policy in the region today.
Discussions of disability in culture and society highlight the
broader conditions in which disabled people must build their
identities and well-being whilst in-depth biographical profiles
outline what living with disabilities in the region is like.
Chapters on policy interventions, including international
influences, examine recent reforms and the difficulties of
implementing inclusive, community-based care. The book will be of
interest both to regional specialists, for whom well-being,
equality and human rights are crucial concerns, and to scholars of
disability and social policy internationally.
