Participatory training in disability and migration

mobilizing community capacities for advocacy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article offers methodological and theoretical reflections on a recent community-research partnership and participatory training program that was designed with the goal of improving the settlement experiences of migrants with disabilities living in Canada. Anchored in critical theoretical and anticolonial studies and offering intersectional perspectives on forms of oppression experienced by migrants with disabilities, our training program represents a collaborative form of knowledge production with transformative potential for front-line workers and organizers. In this article, we begin the reflective process by unpacking our approach to participatory training, explicating our theoretical assumptions, and linking our values and theories to praxis.
