Disability Knowledge: Hungarian and English
Simply finding knowledge and information about people with disabilities in developing countries can be an enormously difficult task. This is particularly the case for people who are seeking, not mere anecdotal information (which is more common but has its limitations) but academic papers or resources that can be used by people working in the field. Information in languages other than English is even more challenging to find.
People in Hungary–and elsewhere–now have a new, experimental web resource to turn to. Professor György Könczei at ELTE University, Budapest has established DisabilityKnowledge.org to be used as a resource for finding and sharing knowledge related to people with disabilities. Some of its pages are in English, many in Hungarian. This resource is targeted at policy-makers, disability activists,
academicians, practitioners in the human service fields, and students of Disability Studies.
DisabilityKnowledge is seeking more studies, papers, and presentations to share on their site. If you have materials to share, follow the link to learn more.
As an interesting side note: Hungary is the second of only four countries to have fully ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
