Research Center for Ars Vivendi Project A-3 Seminars on Systems/Policies concerning Survival “Disability/Society”
Large movements concerning systems/policies concerning “disabilities” and “illnesses” have been occurring including the Act on the Elimination of Disability Discrimination and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). These new systems/policies review disabilities and illnesses from the relationship with the society and come up with participation of persons with disabilities and illnesses. Research Center for Ars Vivendi hosts a series of seminars in order to understand and envision systems/policies over “disabilities” and “illnesses.”
