World became my room, new edition

The first edition of World became my room was published in 1996. Great news for our international friends - the new edition of the book is now available also in English!

Now, as a 60-year-old, international disability activist Kalle Könkkölä talks about his eventful life: Making a difference in the United Nations and in The World Bank, adventures in the Africa, Balkan and Central Asia, and about the domestic politics on the municipality-, disability- and the government level. Kalle also talks about euthanasia, fetal diagnostics, his relationship with religion and about disabled person´s desire and right to love.

This new edition also gets closer to Könkkölä´s personal life - Kalle remembers the friends who have passed away and talks about getting older.
