The Department of Disability, Inclusion and Special Needs (DISN) at the School of Education presents a Dubai campus-led event 'The human library - Stories from the UAE Desert'. 'How far have we come? Looking towards the next 50.'

This session brings together key voices from the regulator ADEK in the United Arab Emirates. We explore and shine the light on specifically how inclusion and accessibility have improved the lives for People of Determination.  Where has the greatest impact been evidenced? What difference has this made to the lives of students?  In line with the current UAE focus, ‘Towards the next 50’, we discuss how Education Institutes can build on this progress over the coming years and the reality of how this vision can be achieved. Introduced by Professor David Sadler, Provost University of Birmingham, Dubai and facilitated by Dr. Sarah Benson
