Protecting the Right to Culture of Persons with Disabilities and Enhancing Cultural Diversity through European Union Law: Exploring New Paths

Project description

Exploring New Paths to Protect the Right to Culture of Persons with Disabilities

One fifth of the EU population has some form of disability. Ensuring that people with disabilities have access to culture, either as a consumer or an amateur or professional contributor, is essential to create an inclusive society. The EU-funded DANCING project will investigate to what extent the protection of the right to take part in culture and the promotion of cultural diversity intersect and complement each other in the EU legal order. It will use a combination of legal, empirical and arts-based research to pursue three complementary objectives, respectively: experiential, normative and theoretical. The project will identify and categorise barriers to and facilitators of cultural participation experienced by disabled people and how they affect the wider cultural domain. It will also provide a normative exploration of how the EU can combat discrimination, ensure accessibility of cultural activities, promote disability identities, while achieving cultural diversity.
