 Disability in the Nordic countries since 1945

The situation of people with disabilities in the Nordic countries has changed dramatically since 1945. Following World War II, the Nordic welfare model promised greater rights for disabled people. Disability rights activism reached its peak in the 1970s and early 1980s when protests and awareness campaigns led to a new social and rights-based understanding of disability as well as legal reforms.

The podcast is written by Anna Derksen, and read out and produced by Nicola Witcombe.

 Mennesker med handicap: Politiske Strømninger i Norden siden 1945

Situationen med de handicappede i de nordiske lande har ændret sig kraftigt siden 1945. Efter Anden Verdenskrig lovede den nordiske velfærdsmodel flere rettigheder for handicappede. Bevægelser for handicappedes rettigheder bestående af forældreforeninger, selvhjælpsorganisationer, offentlige og politiske tilhængere nåede sit højdepunkt i 1970'erne og begyndelsen af ​​1980'erne, hvor protester og bevidsthedskampagner førte til en ny social og rettighedsbaseret forståelse af handicap samt juridiske reformer.
