2018-1 CALL FOR PAPERS
Research in the context of disability and international development
In which way can science contribute to social development and improve the human rights situation of people with disabilities? Among many academic and political actors there seems to be a general consensus about the crucial role of research in the realization of internationally agreed development and human rights standards – particularly the SDGs and the UN CRPD. Governmental and non-governmental stakeholders alike call for sufficient data and scientific indicators for the monitoring and further development of respective implementation programs and strategies. At the same time, criticism of the prevailing dominance of non-disabled academics from the Global North in the initiation and conduction of research in the Global South is growing.
This issue takes a look at the current research landscape in the context of disability and international development. We are particularly, but not exclusively, looking for articles focusing on the following topics:
- The necessity and relevance of research activities for improving living conditions for people with disabilities in the global south
- Research projects reviewing the realization of the SDGs and the UN CRPD
- Best-practice of meaningful involvement of self-advocates with disability and other stakeholders from the Global South
- Critical reflections about prevailing power hierarchies in the global scientific community and their impact on knowledge production and transfer
