This project paired storytellers (people with lived experience of disability and support to exercise legal capacity) with respondents (legal or social sciences scholars, activists, frontline workers etc.).
After completing the application forms and being selected for the project, the pairs first met in April 2016 and have worked together since then to present at our events and to co-author a chapter for our edited collection. Below we list these pairs by theme and over the coming weeks each pair will have their own dedicated page on the blog. For now please look at our Meet the Storyteller and Meet the Respondent blog post series to find out more.
