Disability & Society


Disability & Society is an international journal published 10 times a year by Taylor & Francis. It provides a focus for debate about such issues as human rights, discrimination, definitions, policy and practices. It appears against a background of change in the ways in which disability is viewed and responded to.

Definitions of disability are more readily acknowledged to be relative; segregated approaches are seen as inadequate and unacceptable – placing greater emphasis on community care and inclusion. However, policy intentions may not have the desired effects on the realities of everyday practice and policy changes themselves may be merely cosmetic, or appropriate but unfounded.

The journal publishes articles that represent a wide range of perspectives including the importance of the voices of disabled people.

This journal is only available to individual ASID members.
