Young People and the Disabled People’s Movement - Miro Griffiths

Miro will present on his research which explores young disabled people's experiences and views of the Disabled People's Movement.

The Centre for Disability Studies is delighted to announce the latest in their Conversations series. 

Abstract

Miro will provide insight into his doctoral research, which explores young disabled people's experiences and views on participating within the Disabled People's Movement. The research highlights the challenges encountered by young disabled people as they attempt to have an active role within the Movement. The presentation will focus on respondents' insights in three particular areas: challenges related to membership of the Movement, challenges related to the organisation of the Movement, and future considerations that will affect the sustainability of the Movement.
