A History of Learning Disability and Human Rights
06 Jul 2022 17:30 - 19:00
In this talk, we take the long view on the question of rights for people with learning disabilities, tracing back to the UK's Mental Deficiency Act of 1913 and the emergence of eugenics, which marked the beginning of the incarceration of people with learning disabilities on a widespread scale. Despite some progress over time, we ask why upholding the rights of people with learning disabilities continues to be so difficult to achieve.
This event is open to all. Please book a ticket to attend and the Zoom link will be emailed to you in advance of the event.
