No Longer Researching about Us without Us: A Researcher's Reflection on Rights and Inclusive Research in Ireland
Johnson, Kelley
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v37 n4 p250-256 Dec 2009
"No Longer Researching About Us Without Us" was an innovative national project which aimed to develop inclusive research with people with intellectual disabilities in the Republic of Ireland. This paper is my personal reflection as co-ordinator of this project on work undertaken by and with people with intellectual disabilities during its 18-month life. Using examples from the project, this paper explores links between the inclusive research aspect of project and the rights of people with intellectual disabilities to participate in their communities. As a result of the project we found that people with intellectual disabilities began to initiate and take action on some issues that were important to them and that this resulted in the development of longer term changes in their role within one service in Ireland.
