About the Event Organisers: The Oxford University Disability Law and Policy Project
The Oxford University Disability Law and Policy Project develops initiatives which bring new perspectives to academic analyses of law and policy, and to generate policy-relevant research which better engages with the intersectional experiences of people with disabilities. It is also intended that in addition to these specific academic aims, the objectives for expanding the substantive discussion of disability in the University’s teaching and research will also have a filter-down effect: improving the accessibility of facilities for students and academics with disabilities, enabling our increased representation, career progression, success and inclusion in the University’s academic life.
