First invitation to the international conference 

"25 Years Independent Living in Sweden"

Stockholm, November 28-29, 2008

 

How far has the Independent Living Movement come and where are we going? The conference celebrating 25 years of the Independent Living movement in Sweden will evaluate the achievements of our international civil rights movement in Sweden, Europe and other parts of the world and plan for tomorrow.

 

Together with Judy Heumann and Marilyn Golden, USA, Bente Skansgård, Norway, Kalle Könkkölä, Finland, Shoji Nakanishi, Japan, John Evans, UK, Horst Frehe, Germany, Jos Huys, Belgium, with representatives of the Swedish movement and with allies in administration, research and politics we will discuss successful Independent Living strategies and examples of good practice in our respective countries and regions, look back at our development and set the course for the future. 

 

In plenary sessions and workshops we will share our experiences in working for de-institutionalization, personal assistance, legislation for non-discrimination and accessibility, and for spreading the Independent Living philosophy and approach to other countries. Have we been able to influence social policy, have we had an impact on society's and our own view of disabled people, has our work led to concrete improvements in our group's living conditions? How can we better support each other in our struggle for full citizenship, self-determination and self-respect?

 

The conference is intended for disabled people and their organizations, service providers, civil servants, politicians, researchers and the general public. Expect to leave the event with new friends, insights and impulses.

 

The event is organized by the Swedish Independent Living network.

==================================================

 

Första inbjudan till internationell konferens 

"25 år Independent Living-rörelse i Sverige"

Hotel Scandic Continental vid Centralstationen, Stockholm 28-29 november 2008

 

I december 1983 introducerades Independent Living-filosofin och dess arbetssätt i Sverige. Vårt 25 årsfirande ger oss tillfälle att fråga hur långt Independent Living-rörelsen har kommit och vart vi är på väg? Vad kan vi lära oss av våra utländska kollegor? Konferensen den 28-29 november granskar utvecklingen av IL, den internationella medborgarrättsrörelsen av människor med funktionsnedsättningar i Sverige, Europa och resten av världen.

 

I konferensen deltar bland annat Judy Heumann och Marilyn Golden, USA, Bente Skansgård, Norge, Kalle Könkkölä, Finland, Shoji Nakanishi, Japan, John Evans, Storbritannien, Horst Frehe, Tyskland och Jos Huys, Belgien. Tillsammans med företrädare för den svenska handikapprörelsen, tjänstemän i statsförvaltningen, forskare och politiker diskuterar vi vad rörelsen i Sverige och andra länder åstadkommit. Har vi kunnat påverka lagstiftningen? Har vi ändrat samhällets och vår egen syn på människor med funktionsnedsättningar? Har vårt arbete lett till konkreta förbättringar i människors liv? Med vilka mål och medel ska vi fortsätta vår kamp för fullt medborgarskap, självbestämmande och självrespekt?

 

I workshops diskuterar vi framgångsrika metoder för av-institutionalisering, personlig assistans, antidiskrimineringslagstiftning och tillgänglighet och hur Independent Living-filosofin och arbetssätt kan spridas till andra länder och påverka biståndspolitiken.

 

Bland de svenska deltagare som hittills bekräftat finns bland annat Ulrik Lindgren, Socialdepartementet, f d socialminister Bengt Westerberg, Peter Brusén, Socialstyrelsen, Lars Lindberg, tjänstledig från Socialdepartementet, f d DHR ordförande Birgitta Andersson, doktorand Susanne Berg, Cecilia Blanck, JAG, prof. Lars Trädgårdh, f d medicinalråd Karl Grünewald, dr Kent Ericsson, Uppsala universitet m fl.

 

Konferensen riktar sig till personer med funktionsnedsättningar och deras organisationer, tjänstemän, politiker, forskare och allmänheten. 

 

Välkommen!

 

Arrangör: Det svenska Independent Living nätverket
