For university faculty staff teaching courses on education law and policy and a resource for students conducting research, government officials, and professionals in these fields. Combating discrimination on the basis of disability and special needs education is an area that is receiving increased attention from the European Commission and the Member States. This is reflected in the fact that the year 2003 has been designated the European Year of Disabled Citizens. This timely book is about raising awareness of the rights of disabled people to full equality and participation in all areas. It aims to show that disability is an issue of concern to all of us.
