Situation of Persons with Disabilities in Post-War and Post-Conflict Situations

This issue of the journal deals with living conditions and situations of people with disabilities after periods of war and/or conflict. As already stated by UN Special Rapporteur Leandro Despouy in 1993 wars and armed conflicts are causing long-term disabilities in large groups of the population and – at the same time – are situations of high vulnerability for PWD. Since strategies of war as well as weapons have changed over the last decades and differ from conflict to conflict, the situation of PWD afterwards might be disparate but disastrous in any way. The challenges that arise are manifold for PWD as well as aid organisations and governments. In most situations of conflict victims have no legal basis to claim their rights. At the same time they have to cope with insufficient rehabilitation services. With this issue, the German Journal for Disability and International Development wants to raise a topic that is not often heard but reality for many people. It will ask about:

  • traumatisation of large parts of population
  • legal rights of victims of wars/conflicts and compensation
  • availability of and access to rehabilitation services
  • specific challenges for PWD and war veterans concerning resettlement and generating income
  • the problem of unfair distribution of aids between war veterans and disabled civilians
  • changes in perceptions of disability through conflict and war

Suggestions for contributions:

  • Introductory article
  • Articles reflecting and analysing the situation in specific countries
  • Impact studies/Surveys/Case Studies/Reviews
  • Reports from best practice projects
  • Autobiographical reports
  • And others

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
