About this product
- DescriptionThis casebook analyses the lessons learned from a radical and ambitious project initiated by Oxfam at the height of the war in Bosnia. Disabled children in former Yugoslavia were traditionally cared for in centralised institutions run by State-paid 'defectologists'. When Oxfam assumed responsibility for one such centre in Tuzla, its emphasis evolved from the provision of clinical services to the integration of the children in the local community - an alternative approach w regarded in the area as a model for other programmes. This book looks at the themes of development in conflict, disability in conflict and the social model of disability in a post-communist society in detail.
- Author BiographyRachel has worked for Oxfam GB for 16 years in field and headquarter posts implementing and supporting humanitarian programmes. Since 2006 she has been the Global Protection Adviser leading Oxfam's programme strategy for protection work.
