Feasibility Study ABiD-Institute Disability and Participation, Practical Research and Research-Related Practic
The goal is to strengthen the opportunities for participation of people with disabilities as well as their self-representational organizations on a national level. To this end, we are researching organizational and institutional structures, through which political disability interest groups of ABiD can be (re-)organized in a more substantiated and more effective manner.
In this way, we want, among other things, contribute to the advanced training of people with disabilities as well as their organizations, in order to promote their skills in self-representing their interests on a national level. The final organizational form – e.g. an affiliated institute within the structures of ABiD – should then grant accessibility to the already acquired advisory expertise of ABiD for a wider circle of people with disabilities and thus expand on ABiD’s own organizational and political activities.
To this end, we are researching the need for participation research and determining guidelines respectively open research questions for future research. More precisely, we are concerned with the comprehensive enabling of participation in the spirit of the UN
All in all the feasibility study aims at examining whether or not the planned founding of an institute is practicable, which legal form is appropriate, which statutory and ethical principles should be at the foundation of its work, and which financial, material and personal resources are needed.
The feasibility study in itself does not aim at addressing a wider public. The goal is rather to determine the conditions under which the participation of people with disabilities and their self-representational organizations can be further improved.
