Introduction to the Special Issue of the Periodical Hungarian Journal of Disability Studies & Special Education (Fogyatékosság és Társadalom)

“The first Disability Studies research was carried out in Hungary in the course of 1984, in the Cooperative Research Institute – lead by Director Antal Gyenes (member of the Imre Nagy government of 1956). The values it was based on would have qualified it as Disability Studies research. However, not even the researcher called it a DS research – we did not use this term that time. That research focused on the vocational rehabilitation of people with disabilities in (so called) industrial cooperatives.”
