Why we Need the Social Model: Disability Politics in Adult Learning and Education

Let’s start by thinking terminology - remembering that language can be a tool of oppression. What is the opposite of disabled…? Abled you might think. Try to exchange abled with enabled – and voilà, the structural elements come to light. While people with special needs are systematically [dis]abled by society, able-bodied citizens are privileged because society [en]ables their full participation. People have impairments, but it is the barriers to access the world that [dis]able them. Adjusting our language gives us a start into defining what scholars and activists call the social model of disability. The social model posits that rather than disability being located as something wrong inside an individual’s body, people are actually disabled by an “ableist” society.

Art Therapy, Museotherapy and all those other forms of neuroaesthetic therapy based on the activation of stimuli have proven to be extremely effective in improving the health and social conditions of different target groups with intellectual and cognitive disabilities. The ACCEASY project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, is a KA2 Strategic Partnership which aims to raise awareness of the importance of European cultural heritage, to improve the access to cultural heritage for people with intellectual disabilities and to use cultural heritage as an instrument to promote social inclusion. By adopting the Easy-to-Read language system, the project partners are tackling the lack of accessibility to cultural heritage from a cognitive point of view.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ‘HOMELAND’ SECURITY

Security is cost-free indispensability for all brands of actors to enjoy civility and regularity. Widened and deepened structure of security push state actors more aligned with prerequisites of current and future developments within the probability of their projections, which actually challenge the sense of security itself. The quest of reaching a ‘secured’ environment somehow de-securitizes the state actors due to competing ‘multiple and complex’ units, motivated by contradicting goals.
