 Dr Anna Arstein-Kerslake (Irish Centre for Human Rights) and Prof Eilionoir Flynn (Centre for Disability Law and Policy) have been awarded a new grant from UN Women to undertake a study on the legal needs of women with intellectual disability and psychosocial disability in Asia and the Pacific. The project will employ an administrative staff member, a research assistant, and a post-doctoral researcher to collaborate with partner organisations in the region, co-develop a legal needs survey with disabled women, deliver the survey to at least 50 participants, and analyse the results. The aim is that the project leads on to a larger law reform effort to realise the right to legal capacity and access to justice of disabled women in Asia and the Pacific.
