Seminar: Sweden, the best in the world in disability politics?

On Thursday 10th September 2015 at 11-17
At Hanasaari, The Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre, Hanasaarenranta 5, Espoo (the cultural centre is accessible)

Sweden has been a pioneer in the disability policy reforms. What can Finland learn from the Swedish experience?

In Sweden, the aim of the legislative reforms has been to increase opportunities for people with disabilities in social inclusion as well as a more independent life. Will the independence and the inclusion of people with disabilities increase in Sweden, when personal assistance is provided for by law? What the UN ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities means in Sweden?


Swedish and Finnish, simultaneous interpretation.
