Canning House’s Opportunities Series examines, through various lenses, the opportunities and obstacles faced by disadvantaged groups in Latin America. The second event, Opportunities and Disability, considers the approaches to tackling the discrimination disabled people face.

What opportunities – for economic security, political & social influence, and personal fulfilment – do disabled people have in 21st Century Latin America?

What strategies, policies and regulations are needed to deliver equal opportunities?

How does the UK compare?

How can we collaborate to help one another?
