Dementia, Disability and Human Rights One Day Conference

Dementia, Disability, and Human Rights One Day Conference

On Tuesday the 11th June 2019 Keele University hosted a one day conference entitled 'Dementia, Disability, and Human Rights' funded by the Royal Institute of Philosophy, the Keele Institute for Social inclusion, and the School of Law.
The conference was a great success, with around 100 delegates and an exceptional range of speakers including individuals living with dementia, together with academics and practitioners.
Larry Gardner FRSA, from the 3 Nations Dementia Working Group, stated that:
"yesterday’s colloquium was very valuable, of tremendous interest and, contributed significantly to the field of law in respects of dementia...What I found thrilling yesterday were the presentations of work in progress on sexuality, on end-of-life and on challenges faced by the hospice movement. In fact the whole proceedings had a rather daring and provocative tone; provocations force us to think more widely."
