Disability Effective Inclusive Policies Project (DEIP)
The DEIP project aims to explore ways in which the Higher Education sector
can support equality of opportunity in education and employment for people
who are disadvantaged through a range of disabilities, and who may also
be disadvantaged because of their race, gender, class and / or age.
At Lancaster we have been reviewing the literature relating to disability
policy with respect to education and employment and reviewing institutional
policy and practice to identify examples of good practice in relation
to careers support and employability skills.
Researchers at Lancaster University and Sussex University have also explored the experiences and understandings of services through interviews with disabled students, university staff, disabled graduates, and employers.
DEIP Discussion Papers
The following discussion papers are based on the research activities of the DEIP project which have included analyses of institutional disability policy and interviews with disabled students, university staff, disabled graduates and employers.
The papers are designed to stimulate discussion in forums such as staff training sessions and in student seminars, though individuals may find these papers offer helpful sources of information for their personal use. The discussion papers may also serve as valuable resources for policy makers and practitioners concerned with making education and employment more accessible and inclusive.
The papers are not designed to offer authoritative advice and guidance
on the topics discussed, rather, they are intended as resources to aid
the discussion of complex issues and debates.
