Disability Law and Policy book coverBronagh Byrne has a chapter in a new book Disability Law and Policy: An Analysis of the UN Convention. Essential reading for legal practitioners, academics, researchers and disability rights groups, this book undertakes a multidisciplinary examination of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  Bronagh's chapter 'Reconciling Sameness and Difference in Disability Rights Ideology: The Case of Student Identity' explores barriers to education for young people with hearing and visual impairments and the ‘crisis of belonging’ that emerged for these young people between accessing the curriculum on the one hand through various forms of support, and adopting a perceived 'independent' student identity on the other.
