MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes and discusses a piece of inclusive and participatory fieldwork undertaken in January 2023, that followed on from and complemented an earlier piece of research in the same sites in Bangladesh in 2022. Please see the report from Shaw and Wickenden (2022) for more details of the first visit. The current work was carried out in Rangpur and Rajshahi in Bangladesh in close collaboration with local and international NGOs working on disability as part of the UK government Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) funded Disability Inclusive Development (DID) programme. Informed by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN 2006), Task Order 12 (TO12) in the DID programme affirms disabled people’s right to work and is modelled on and adapted from the mainstream STAR youth employment programme run by BRAC in Bangladesh.
