CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Disability and Inclusive Economic Development
Note that, although abstracts are due by August 1, 2008, completed papers will not be due until 2009. This same announcement was posted at We Can Do in April, but the editors are circulating this notice again in an attempt to collect more abstracts for them to choose among.
Call for Papers for the Review of Disability Studies
Special Issue on Disability and Inclusive Economic Development.
The Review of Disability Studies is requesting papers for an upcoming special issue on Disability and Inclusive Development, to be edited by Rosangela Berman Bieler of the Inter-American Institute on Disability and Inclusive Development and Daniel Mont of The World Bank.
This issue is intended to highlight recent research on the links between disability and socio-economic outcomes in developing countries, as well as evaluate attempts to move towards a more inclusive model of development
In particular, we are soliciting papers about the developing world that answer questions such as:
- What is the relationship between disability and poverty?
- How does the presence of a disability affect people’s access to education, training, and employment?
- What is the relationship between health status, disability, and mortality?
- What are the key barriers that prevent access to public services such as education, healthcare, transportation, water and sanitation, etc.?
- What are some examples of programs or policy interventions aimed at including disabled people, and how effective have they been?
We particularly encourage submissions from authors from developing countries. We also encourage submissions across all disciplines, as long as they are aimed at helping to build more effective inclusive policies.
Completed articles should be approximately 3000-5000 words and should follow all RDS formatting guidelines found at http://www.rds.hawaii.edu/submissions/. Note that an invitation to (submit an abstract or) participate in the forum does not guarantee publication of that article in The Review of Disability Studies.

This announcement was circulated by Daniel Mont via email. Any inquiries and abstracts should please be directed to Daniel Mont or to Rosangela Berman Bieler as instructed above, NOT to We Can Do.
