Disaster, Disability & Difference: A Study of the Challenges Faced by Persons with Disabilities in Post-Earthquake Nepal
PDF File Size: 5.88 MB | Download   
This research-based report mainly focuses on the unique challenges faced by persons with disabilities in the wake of the earthquakes that devastated Nepal in April and May of 2015. Also it emphasizes on identifying trends of structural inequality & social exclusion that affect differential patterns of resilience and recovery as well as ways these trends might be mitigated from the perspective of policy and practice. Furthermore, it attempts to provide a thematic framework for understanding the social, economic & institutional issues that shape specific patterns of vulnerability for persons with disabilities in Nepal.
