Publisher Description

Disabling Poverty, Enabling Citizenship, a five year (2008 – 2014) SSHRC funded Community

University Research Alliance (CURA) project, has been led by the Council of Canadians with

Disabilities (CCD), with Professor Michael J. Prince and Yvonne Peters as the Co-Principal

Researchers. Of the over 90 CURA grants awarded by SSHRC over the years, it is one of only

a very few that were community led. This community-driven research partnership is significant

for embodying exactly what it has aimed to achieve in society – inclusion, accessibility and

participation. Indeed, the overall working model of the partnership embraced effectively both

a philosophical and practical approach to research, a social rights model to disability, and a

cross-disability perspective, informed as well by gender analysis emphasizing the lived experiences

and the voices of persons with disabilities in order to advance substantive equality.
