Beskrivelse Beskrivelse

Tittel

Poverty, disability and access to social welfare in the Peoples Republic of China

Sammendrag

En studie av sammenhengen mellom funskjonshemning og fattigdom i Kina.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The project focuses on disabled persons in the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) as an ethnographic case study. We aim to develop holistic analyses of local poverty mechanisms and contribute to the international research and policy on poverty reduction.

Sub-goals are:
- to develop a grass-root approach to the study of poverty and poverty reduction, with focus on poor disabled
- to explore the barriers to participation in community life (with focus on health care, education and employment) as these unfold among persons with disabilities living in the poor rural areas of Inner Mongolia and Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR)
- to analyse the processes of policy implementation in the context of PRCs recently developed welfare schema
- to explore the significance of cultural factors in the interconnection between poverty and disability
- to contribute to the national discourse about poverty and disability in the PRC, by cooperating with the China Peoples federation and arranging seminars and courses in Beijing and Lhasa.

Metode

Studien benytter seg av kvalitative metoder, hovedsakelig dybdeintervjuer, men også noe deltakende observasjon.
