Disabled Activism Dissertation

KatieCarter98KatieCarter98 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Good Morning Everyone,

I hope this finds you all safe and well.

My name is Katie Carter and I am about to enter my final year studying Geography at the University of Glasgow. I am writing my undergraduate dissertation on the topic of Disabled Activism, specifically How do disabled activists seek to tackle the social inclusion barriers imposed within modern society within the UK?

The main questions to my research are:

1.            How do disabled activists define ‘disability’ as they negotiate social exclusion for disabled people?

2.            How do disabled activists achieve change in different spaces and at different scales?

3.            What are the barriers to effective disabled activism and how are these negotiated?

With positive change for disabled communities within the UK being at the heart of Scope, I was wondering whether anyone would be willing to complete this survey discussing disabled activism within the UK and how it affects social inclusion in all aspects of society.

Here is the link to the survey:

Alternatively, if you do not feel comfortable participating in this survey and would just like to share your thoughts on my research, provide guidance on what may be relevant to furthering my research, or anything related to the above, then please do email me at [email protected]. Additionally, if you would be happy to participate in an interview or focus group, please do pop me an email. All your thoughts, no matter how they are given, are gratefully received.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to discussing disabled activism with some of you and learning from you.

Best Wishes,

Katie Carter
