Enabling disabled people to reduce poverty study: Mainstreaming disability in development: Lessons from gender mainstreaming

Abstract

This paper explores the meaning of mainstreaming, specifically looking at how it emerged as a strategy of feminist advocacy in the context of development, and draws comparisons with the history of the disability movement.

Recent recommendations that have been made for mainstreaming disability, with specific emphasis on DFID, are explored and compared with what is currently seen to be 'good practice' in gender mainstreaming.

A 6-page executive summary is available as well as the full report.
