Adolf, Dr. Ratzka.  2015.  Die Voraussetzungen zur De-institutionalisierung von Menschen mit Behinderungen.
Persönliche Assistenz ist eine hochqualitative und kostengünstige Alternative zu Wohneinrichtungen und ambulanten Diensten, laut Adolf Ratzka - eine Behauptung, die er mit den über 20-jährigen schwedischen Erfahrungen mit persönlicher Assistenz belegt. Den Hauptwiderstand gegen persönliche Assistenz in Deutschland sieht er in den Eigeninteressen der Wohlfahrtsverbände und dem noch weitverbreiteten medizinischen Bild von Behinderung.
Adolf, Dr. Ratzka.  2015.  Self-determination through Direct Payments and Personal Assistance cooperatives.

Personal Assistance is here depicted as an example of demand-driven as opposed to supply-driven services which, according to the text's analysis, would explain the differences between these services in terms of quality and cost efficiency.

Ansorge, Josef T.  2014.  Global Disability: Reality, Theory, Practice.
The author, a Juris Doctorate student at Yale Law School seeks to show that Global disability needs to be considered in a global justice framework. Medicalizing the issue of disability may occlude the social and political aspects of disability. While the history of political thought and social contract theories are embarrassing in their neglect and treatment of disability, the history of the U.S. Civil Rights struggle offers some interesting parallels.

Barnes, Colin.  2003.  Disability, the organization of work, and the need for change.
Professor Barnes, from the Centre for Disability Studies, University of Leeds, England points out that, "regardless of their role within the 'conventional' labour market, disabled people are both producers and consumers of a vast array of services upon which many non-disabled people depend; they are, therefore, a fundamental component within this equation."

Barnes, Colin.  2003.  Rehabilitation for Disabled People: a ‘sick’ joke?
Professor Barnes, from the Centre for Disability Studies, University of Leeds, England argues that the relationship between disability and rehabilitation is best explained in terms of three distinct but related definitions of disability: the orthodox ‘individualistic’ medical definition, the more liberal ‘inter-relational’ account, and the ‘radical‘ socio/political interpretation commonly referred to as the ‘social model of disability’. He concludes with a brief focus on alternative strategies generated by disabled people and their organisations. Internet publication URL: http://www.independentliving.org/docs6/barnes2003a.html

Barnes, Colin.  1998.  Discrimination and the law - the British Experience.
In his presentation at the seminar organized by Independent Living Sweden, Stockholm, and and the Office of the Disability Ombudsman, Professor Colin Barnes of the Disability Research Unit in Leeds, UK, describes the Disability Discrimination Act enacted in 1995 in the UK, why and how the Act came into being, and why the Act is a mistake. He notes that the result of policies in general has been to create dependence for disabled people instead of independence which is what disabled people want and have a right to.

Under det röda sextiotalet ifrågasattes samhällets uppbyggnad, orättvisor diskuterades i vänsterbelysning och en våg av aktiviteter intog det offentliga rummet. Personer med funktionshinder blev också radikala. I Lund bildades aktionsgruppen Anti-Handikapp. Påverkan skedde ofta genom musik, teater, debatter.

I början av 1993 köpte fyra män med begåvningshandikapp ett eget hem i en av Helsingborgs förorter. Huset köptes på öppna marknaden, byggdes om och inreddes gemensamt.

Den tjugoförsta augusti 2004 marscherar personer med funktionshinder för andra året i rad genom centrala Stockholm.

Barn och unga med funktionshinder hade inte rätt att gå i den ordinarie kommunala skolan. Särskilda skolhem, institutioner var alternativet.

Berg, Susanne, Jahanmahan Farhad.  2004.  ”Vad sysslar du med?” är ett radioprogram om arbetsmarknaden för unga med funktionshinder och lagen om förbud mot diskriminering i arbetslivet
Vad man sysslar med, vilket arbete man har är av mycket stor betydelse i vårt samhälle. Arbetet är en stor del av den personliga identiteten; en del som inte enbart har betydelse för individens ekonomiska situation men också för hur sociala relationer inleds, formas och utvecklas. Tillgången till arbetsmarknaden är alltså en nyckelfråga för svenskarna. Vi fokuserar i det här programmet på ungdomar med funktionshinder och hur deras entré i arbetslivet ser ut.

Stockholmskooperativet för Independent Living är resultatet av ett litet antal individers kamp för personlig assistans i mitten på nittonhundraåttiotalet. Personlig assistans är, i motsats till hemtjänst eller boendeservice, en service knuten till den enskilde själv. Den som behöver assistans bestämmer själv vem som ska assisterar med vad; när det ska göras och hur. Lyssna-MP3 (28:21 minuter, 26,6 MB). Programmet i text.

Berg, Susanne.  2004.  "Motstånd – en plikt"! Ett radioprogram om politiskt motstånd och civil olydnad.
Unga med funktionshinder söker sig i dag mot radikalare rörelser. Direktaktioner är det politiska verktyg de väljer och man kan konstatera att de radikala grupperingarna utanför handikappfrågornas område och de inom rörelsen följs åt till form och innehåll. Kanske kan det ses som en reaktion mot den organiserade politiken; mot dennas oförmåga att möta problemställningar och krav från olika grupper. Utomparlamentarism och civil olydnad är det som gäller. Lyssna-MP3 (26 minuter, 24,4 MB). Programmet i text. Deltagare: Sari Nykvist, Finn Hellman, Jonas Franksson, Fredrik Larsson.
Berg, Susanne, Jahanmahan Farhad.  2004.  ”Att göra väl eller välgörenhetsskrammel”. 2004-04, är ett radioprogram om insamlingars vara eller inte vara. Vem gagnar de egentligen?
1997 startar insamlingarna till kronprinsessan Viktorias fond. De donerade pengarna ska gå till att ge funktionshindrade en meningsfull fritid. Fonden blir droppen som får bägaren att rinna över för Förbundet Unga Rörelsehindrade och något år senare startar de själva Stackars Viktoria-fonden i ett motdrag. Välgörenhet är av ondo anser de.

Bergström, Hans.  2004.  "Sundby mentalsjukhus – helt slutet från samhället utanför" - ett radioprogram om hur det var att bli intagen för mentalvård på 1980-talet i Sverige.
Vård av personer med psykiska funktionsnedsättningar i Sverige handlar om institutionernas historia. Sinnessjuk, mentalsjuk, psykiskt störd är vad personer kallats under åren. Sinnessjukhus, mentalsjukhus, psykiatriska kliniker är namnet på institutionerna. Namnet på personerna är kopplat till namnet på byggnaden där de vårdats. Så blir invånarna avpersonifierade, objekt istället för individer med personlighet. I det här programmet får vi en inblick i vad det innebar att tas in på Sundby mentalsjukhus i början av 1980-talet.

Berrol, Sheldon.  1979.  "The Role of the Able-Bodied Professional.".
Sheldon Berrol notes that the success of the independent living movement, in contrast to a rehabilitation or medical approach to disability, is due to the creation and nurturing of the movement by the disabled community. The role of the able bodied professional working with disabled people is to provide services, be active advocates, share skills, and provide training while allowing the direction of the Independent Living Program to come from within the disabled community.
