    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    The number of disabled people has grown from around 10 percent of the world population in the 1970s to 15 percent, 1 billion people, today. The World Health Organisation predicts that this figure will continue to grow as the world's population ages and chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease and stress related illness increase. Severe physical injury in warfare and road traffic accidents as well as industrial injury, malnutrition and insanitary living conditions also remain major causes of serious impairment. Around the world disabled people are among the most marginalised -- suffering poorer health outcomes, lower levels of educational achievement and higher levels of unemployment and poverty than non-disabled people.

To combat this, a nifty little surprise has been added to some of the spaces, take a look down below and let us know what you think!

  15. TPP Undermines User Control and That's Disastrous for Accessibility
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2015
    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) threatens all users' ability to access information and participate in culture and innovation online, but it's especially severe for those with disabilities or who otherwise depend on content in accessible formats. That's because it doubles down on broken policies that were heavily lobbied for by Hollywood and other major publishers that impede the distribution of accessible works.
  16. A Very Capitalist Condition
    A history and politics of disability

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2015
    This book examines the origins and development of disability and highlights the hidden history of groups such as disabled war veterans, deaf people and those in mental distress. Roddy Slorach describes how capitalist society segregates and marginalises disabled people, generating new impairment and disability as it does so.

    He argues that Marxism not only helps provide a fuller understanding of the politics and nature of disability, but also offers a vision of how disabled people can play a part in building a better world for all.
