Tiivistelmä

This book highlights the embodied knowledge of persons with disabilities as a vital resource for understanding equality without taking disability and development for granted. The perspective of embodied inequality offers alternative ways to comprehend our “normality” as until now the notion of normality has too frequently excluded persons with disabilities and their perspectives. Disability inclusion has never been as important as it is today in the development discourse, yet systematic discrimination against people due to their disabilities persists. To address this, the link between theories and practices is strengthened in this book. Through using different contexts in the different book chapters, the readers are informed of how profoundly inequalities are embedded in our society and pronounced as embodied experiences of persons with disabilities. The chapters are written not only by academics but also by disability activists and NGO representatives. The chapters focus on disabilities and development as embodied inequalities manifested at different levels, including theory, law, and policy and practice. In conclusion, the book presents 6 A’s as lessons learned from decolonial understanding and conceptions of embodied inequalities in different contexts of disability and development: Availability, Affordability, Accessibility, Accountability, Assistance, and Affection.
