Centre for Disability Studies


We would like to join with international disbaility community in commemorating the life and achievements of Bengt Lindqvist, who died on international day of disabled persons 3 December 2016. Bengt was a formative influence in the global disabled people’s movement and in promoting a social interpretation of disability, and in his public leadership role as the first UN Rapporteur promoting and advancing disability on the global human rights agenda.
