Abstract:This publication arose from a project on Disability Inclusion in Research, funded by the University of Cape Town, South Africa, to engage staff and students at higher education institutions with disabled people's organizations. The purpose of the Disability Catalyst Africa series is to create awareness about disability and inclusive development, foster critical debate to produce knowledge and facilitate self-representation of people with disabilities in academic and public forums in South Africa. The contributions in this first issue synthesize relevant information and illustrate how DCA hopes to disseminate it in an accessible way. Sarah Rule accounts for the contributions that three stakeholders - higher education institutions, civil society organizations and local government - could make to disability transitions. Judith Mackenzie explores the role of parents' organizations. Mzolisi ka Toni and Harsha Kathard give an account of the changes achieved by the disability movement in South Africa. Madeleine Duncan, Kate Sherry and Ruth Watson explore the realities and assumptions about disability in the rural context of the Eastern Cape. Lana van Niekerk deals with employment equity for disabled people. Finally, Marguerite Schneider and Judith van der Veen provide two perspectives on monitoring change in disability inclusion.
