  • Personal assistance in a Scandinavian context: similarities, differences and developmental traits

    Askheim, Ole Petter; Bengtsson, Hans; Bjelke, Bjarne Richter (2014)
    Personal assistance (PA) has been characterized as a melting pot consisting of, on the one hand, a social rights discourse with its basis among disabled people, and, on the other hand, a consumer directed market discourse increasingly putting its stamp on welfare policy in the Western world. In the realm of welfare politics, these discourses are, in many ways, opposites, but have found common ground in the demand for a more individual and consumer friendly provision of services. Within a shar...

    Analysis of cost and quality indicators of day activity service programmes in Sweden

    Värja, Emelie; Tholén, Susanna Larsson; Hultkrantz, Lars (2016)
    Several countries provide day activity programmes for people with intellectual disabilities. Little is known about the quality of these programmes or about their effectiveness in providing vocational training. In this study, we analysed the distribution across Swedish municipalities of the cost per user and how this is related to five structure quality and one outcome quality variables. We observed that the expenditure per attendee varies considerably between different municipalities. Statist...

    History from the inside: towards an inclusive history of intellectual disability

    Atkinson, Dorothy; Walmsley, Jan (2010)
    This paper reviews the place of the ‘voice’ in the history of intellectual disability, drawing principally on developments in the UK, but also making reference to comparative developments in other countries. Various approaches have been used by research historians to collect and represent the voices of those involved in this history; including biographical reconstruction, oral history, institutional histories and life histories. In response to the challenge, ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ the ...

    The clinical gaze – ascribed gender(ed) identities in a mental health service context

    Olin, Elisabeth (2016)
    This article focuses on gender(ed) ascribed identities of service users in a mental health service context in Sweden. The empirical data were collected through observations of weekly team conferences. The examples can be described as ‘frozen images’ or ideal types in the sense that they illustrate the different ways service providers describe the service users’ problems at a certain time in a certain context. This article illustrates that the ‘the gaze’ of the service providers was value-lade...

    Eugenics and euthanasia – then and now

    Grue, Lars (2009)
    A main objective of this article is to give a presentation of the widespread acceptance of eugenics in the twentieth century and to show how the German euthanasia programmes were embedded in eugenic ideology. A second objective is to challenge the notion that eugenics and the practice of euthanasia on disabled people disappeared forever with the ending of the Second World War. The main reason for asking this question is to be found in today's medical practices in relation to inherited disorde...
