Abstract (Swedish)
In the broader context of an increasing awareness of perspectives that for long have been
a taboo in development thinking, such as ecology and gender questions, this study
focuses on the subject of disability in development. By raising the question if disability
can be mainstreamed the subject of disability will be compared with what can be learned
from gender-mainstreaming. Conducted as a critical discourse analysis, this study
examines discourses of disability, especially the social model of disability. The results
aim at strengthening the inclusiveness of policy approaches by advocating a multiperspective
approach to development in general and preparing the inclusion of the needs
of disability in development especially.
