Its next conference will be held in the city of Örebro a town in the heart of Sweden, May 3 – 5, 2017.
The NNDR 14th Research Conference aims at giving new insights into frontline topics, questions and approaches within contemporary Disability Research and will in our keynote and plenary session raise the following issues:
- Life courses and history
- Health and social justice
- Gender and diversity
- Technology and universal design
- Education and inclusion
- Service, support and rehabilitation
- Childhood, youth and family
- Labor market and occupation
- Citizenship and welfare policy

- The conference also welcomes papers outside these themes.
By using different theoretical perspectives through the keynote speakers, the paper sessions and poster exhibition, the conference will focus upon key concepts within the disability field today. Through those, the aim is to contribute to develop the research field by building new networks between researchers, practitioners and disability activists locally, nationally and internationally in the disability field.
