In recent years there have been two significant developments within geography. First, the
number of disabled academics is slowly increasing. Second, human geography has started to
turn its attention to disability studies. At present, however, both disabled academics and
disability studies are poorly organised with little formal organisation. DAGIN aims to be
a non-affiliated international network that will provide a platform for and represent
disabled geographers and those doing research on disability. The network supports all
ethical research regardless of approach.
To provide support and campaign for improved organisational recognition and conference
facilities for disabled people.
To provide an international forum for disability and geography discussion.
To encourage geographical research concerning disability issues.
To develop interdisciplinary and intradisciplinary links.
To help organise meetings and conference sessions.
Membership is free and open to all.
The network has no formal, hierarchical structure.
All decisions are circulated amongst members and a consensual approach is taken.
DAGIN news is currently distributed through the GEOGABLE mailing list.
