DISCRIMINATORY ACTS AND YOUNG ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES IN PUBLIC PLACES
Grant number: DP150103717 | Funding period: 2015 - 2019
Young Australians with disabilities face pervasive disadvantages and institutional discrimination in many areas of life excluding them from social and economic participation. This project builds on this knowledge to investigate the inter-personal discrimination young people with disabilities experience in public and the impact of this discrimination on their social, economic, cultural and emotional lives. The potential outcome of this project will be a better understanding of the range and impact of actions and behaviours that young people with disabilities experience as discriminatory, violent or unsafe in public in Australia today.
