Sample text

William Boyce and his colleagues offer a definition that fits well with focus in this book on different levels of action and on societal as well as state structures: “Disability policy embraces courses of action that affect the set of institutions, organizations, services, and funding arrangements of the disability systems. It is not a surprise that they conclude, “the state presents itself to the disabled citizen as a complex set of institutions” (2001, 23). Disability policy is the use of state and social powers to construct identities of disablement and to modulate relations of ability/disability in the population.

A fundamental aspect of the social nature of disability is how people interpret and take meaning from a life event, diagnosis, condition, or impairment. According to Robert Pinker, “the most important definitions of citizenship are subjective ones” (1971, 141).

Some works focus on status (Turner 1988); other works look more at citizenship (Isin and Wood 1999), while still other works examine the interconnection between disability, gender, and social citizenship (Meekosha and Dowse 1997; Morris 1993). The marginal position of most disabled people and their pursuit of inclusion and full citizenship is a clear example of status politics in contemporary life. Status politics, according to Bryan Turner, involves “the assertion of claims for social rights or entitlements against the state by aggregates who experience some form of discrimination” (1988, 13).
