ACCESS 2.0: Making the Public Policy Case for Disability brings together influential experts and activists in the fields of political philosophy, applied economic research and international human rights advocacy for an in-depth conversation about the need to think and talk about disability differently. ACCESS 2.0 is an invitation to reimagine public policy beyond compliance-obsessed approaches to bringing about greater equality and justice for marginalised segments of society. What does access for people with disabilities look like beyond the built environment? What would it mean to position disability at the centre of public policy discourse, as opposed relating to it as an afterthought? These and other questions will be explored in this timely and necessary conversation.
