Mobility Portraits

Het SIHO en het LINK-netwerk onderzochten de ervaringen van studenten met een beperking op vlak van internationale mobiliteit. Het onderzoek - waar het perspectief van de student centraal stond - geeft inzicht in de redenen waarom jongeren met een beperking op internationale mobiliteit gaan, alsook hun ondersteuningsnoden. Het geeft ook inzicht in hoe jongeren hun beperking anders ervaren naargelang de 'plaats' waar ze vertoeven. 

Ontdek hier de zes portretten van deelnemers van over de hele wereld. Het onderzoeksrapport  '(No) limits on international exchange? International mobility and students with a disability' (2012) kunt u hier raadplegen.
