Disability and poverty: A global challenge

Disability and poverty: A global challenge

BOOK by Arne H. Eide and Benedicte Ingstad

Policy Press, May 2011

Environmental barriers, limited access to services and discriminatory attitudes and practice are among key elements that drive disabled people into poverty and keep them there.

This book is about being disabled and being poor and the social, cultural and political processes that link these two aspects of living.

The Authors Arne H. Eide and Benedicte Ingstad explore the lived realities of people with disabilities from across the developing world and examines how the coping strategies of individuals and families emerge in different contexts.
