Disability Matters conference: Making the Convention Real

26 – 29 November 2017

University of Otago

Dunedin, New Zealand

Following on from the highly successful 2011 Inaugural Disability Studies Conference, Every Body In, we invite you to our 2017 conference, Every Body In Again: Making the Convention Matter.

Conference theme:

The conference offers a forum for discussion of disability matters, with a particular focus on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). New Zealanders played a significant role in the development of this Convention – how are we doing now in terms of its implementation?

We look forward to sharing a breadth of perspectives, practice, policy and research initiatives regarding the implementation and impact of the UNCRPD in all aspects of people’s lives, across national and international contexts.

A conference for every body (not just academics):

As with the 2011 conference, we encourage participation by disabled people, families-whānau, students, practitioners, policy-makers, researchers, representatives of self-advocacy, advocacy, service, community organisations and government departments – anyone who is interested in disability matters.

A Call for Papers is forthcoming… In the meantime, please save the date and plan to come to Otago in November 2017.
