EQUALITY LAW AND INCLUSIVE EDUCATION FOR DISABLED STUDENTS

This project considers the extent to which disability discrimination laws require or support the implementation of inclusive education programmes for disabled students. The study examines Hong Kong’s Disability Discrimination Ordinance, domestic equality guarantees from other jurisdictions, and relevant international human rights standards.

The research team is supervised by Kelley Loper and includes several student researchers. The project aims to promote awareness of disability rights and equal opportunities among Hong Kong students and assist policy makers in developing policies which promote inclusion in education. The results of the study was published and reported at forum in summer 2008.
