Understanding the Political and Institutional Conditions for Effective Poverty Reduction for Persons with Disabilities in Liberia
This research project will investigate multidimensional poverty and well-being among individuals with disabilities and their families in Liberia. The findings will support work on poverty alleviation and future longitudinal studies on causality between poverty and disability. Significantly, it will also provide an evidence base for in-country decision making, including drafting and implementation of new National Human Rights Action Plan and National Disability Action Plan. Our research will be the first to examine effects that macroeconomic policies and related efforts (i.e. new disability-specific legislation) have on persons with disabilities, identifying Liberian-specific contextual solutions and best practices, and possibly a 'virtuous circle' where Liberian Government efforts can be reinforced through feedback from persons with disabilities and their organisations
