Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal - Volume 12 Issue 2 & 3

Population aging is taking place in nearly all countries across the globe. Within current research and policy, the relationship between disability and aging is often oversimplified and underdeveloped. Disability is assumed to be a product of unsuccessful aging, and aging as an obstacle to living well with a disability. This special issue of The Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal (RDS) features eight original articles that analyze how disability and aging appear within research and policy in Canada, the United States, Australia and Switzerland. The articles in this international collection use interdisciplinary perspectives to explore the relationship between disability and aging in its complexity. They expose and challenge age and disability related myths and misconceptions and reconsider why global population matters.
