Disability Sport Conference 2016

Posted by

Disability Sport: Why do we ‘Dis’ people’s abilities?

Following on from the success of the first two conferences held in 2012 and 2014, the Centre for Business in Society will be hosting an international, inter-disciplinary conference for academics and practitioners.

The conference will focus on the use of disability sport as a tool for peace, development and social inclusion.
