Flight and migration in the context of disability : current state of research with special regard to children


Hedderich, Ingeborg (2017). Flight and migration in the context of disability : current state of research with special regard to children. Zeitschrift Behinderung und Dritte Welt, 2017(1):12-15.

Abstract

In this article the current state of the relatively young field of research of migration and disability will be pre­
sented. Empirical studies clearly point out that there is no sufficient support available to disabled migrants.
Furthermore, the perspective will be widened by introducing the current issue of flight with special regard to
children. First scientific investigations on the above topic focus on the issues of language barrier and the
need for professional support in case of a trauma. As a consequence of the refugee crisis, a stronger focus
on the contexts of flight and further research in the area of the field of migration and disability is necessary.
