DREAM publication of “How do social institutions influence E-Accessibility polices in the UK, US, and Norway?”

Improvement by Evaluation cover pageI’m happy to announce the publication this summer of my paper co-authored by Rune Halvorsen “How do social institutions influence E-Accessibility polices in the UK, US, and Norway?“. The paper is a peer reviewed publication published as part of the 8th International Conference on Evaluation for Practice: Improvement by Evaluation and published by the University of Tampere School of Humanities and Sciences Unit at University Consortium of Pori.

The article appears as part of Section III, International Comparative Approaches in Evaluation and the publication editors introduce the article as

[an analysis of] policy documents from the U.S., UK and Norway in order to investigate how national and supranational, policies balance and mediate regional and international economic and social needs in the context of E-Accessibility, regulated by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The results show that the different national policy traditions truly matter. The authors conclude by emphasizing the utility of judicial enforcement, the flexibility of providing a low threshold administrative complaint mechanism, and the importance of monitoring.

Of additional note is “The slippery slope of evaluation: Ethics, issues, & methodological challenges using the case study of a housing development” by JoDee Keller at Pacific Lutheran University which discusses the impact on various populations including persons with disabilities of public housing development in the United States Pacific Northwest.
