Aims

The United Nations Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities and, in France, the 2005 law, render the participation of disabled people the affirmation of a central right – and presenting society with a tremendous challenge.

The aim of this Master 2 in Disability and Social Participations (SHPS) is to furnish professionals with new competences enabling them to translate the principles of equality into action – in terms of access to rights and social participation in every aspect of life (education, employment, health, leisure activities, etc.). This Master takes both international and professional dimensions into account, by integrating contributions from Canadian, Belgian and Swiss experts to the teaching.
