The ‘Disability, Law and Society’ stream embraces socio-legal and critical legal scholarship, and builds on a similar stream at the 2019and 2022 Congresses. We aim to bring together papers that problematise and critique the existing doctrine and categories of disability and mental health law. We are particularly interested in including interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary papers that engage with the humanities, the arts, and social sciences. Work that examines the intersections of disability and mental health law with lived experiences of people with disability and the knowledges and experiences of politics, culture, history and society is also welcome. We are also interested in papers that develop new critical perspectives on the more traditional ‘core’ concerns of disability and mental health law (e.g. definitions, coercive interventions, legal capacity, CRPD, consent, deprivation of liberty, equality and disability discrimination). These engagements should bring new questions or issues to the conversation, or connect these concerns to broader political dynamics.
The stream will provide an opportunity to consolidate international communities of socio-legal disability scholars, and discuss possible research collaborations and ongoing research networks.
We encourage people with lived experience, anti-oppression activists, those who work for disability rights NGOs and PhD students to consider submitting an abstract.
Please direct any questions about the stream to Linda Steele: firstname.lastname@example.org. Linda Steele is the Organizer of the Disability, Law and Society Stream.
