The UCD Centre for Disability Studies was founded in 1996. Inspired by developments in the United States, the Centre was Europe’s first university-affiliated disability centre.. The centre’s activities comprise research, teaching, and public engagement. These activities explore the nature of disability, the impact of disability on people with disabilities, their families and the wider social context, and the role of services in meeting need and maximising the potential of people with disabilities.
