The study aims to explore the changing and new mechanisms of marginalisation of disabled people and their families in Hungary. The research fills a gap by trying to uncover and explain how disadvantages combine and accumulate.
The project addresses a wide range of areas of disabled people’s lives, including those that are known to contribute to marginalisation and exclusion (such as structural, institutional, and legal factors in the education, employment and civil rights systems) and those that are much less well-explored and understood, such as access to adequate health care, equal access to justice, latent mechanisms of institutional segregation, spatial inequalities, gender, ethnicity and social status.
In addition to its contribution to basic research, the findings of the study will also be of interest to policy makers and the wider public.
