    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to deepen the knowledge of international exchanges in a school

    context, focusing on what effect the exchanges have for mainly the students involved, and in connection

    to this deepen the knowledge of the key theories and concepts that are applicable in this

    context. The legitimacy of the study has arised from the increasing interest in international exchanges,

    particularly in the school context, and the focus of globalization and international issues in the curriculum

    for the Swedish school.

    The work has been realized through a systematic literature review of previous research on the

    subject and a review of the theories and concepts used in the previous research. The research of the

    effects of international exchanges arrive at different conclusion, and it is difficult to draw any clear

    definitive conclusions. International exchanges in the school context can provide positive effects on

    students' academic studies, identity construction and other skills, but it requires that the arenas for

    learning are created and that the pupil is active. If not the intercultural learning, often considered to be

    the main goal, can be lost and instead the exchanges can have the opposite effect.

    The previous research relates mainly to the theories and concepts of globalization, human interaction

    and interculturalism, which allows themto move in both a sociologically and psychological

    field. In addition, some of the studies relate to a educational science and it is clear that international

    exchanges can affect students in numerous ways: their relationship to society, to other people and to

    themselves

    Is ‘legal empowerment of the poor’ relevant to people with disabilities in developing countries?: An empirical and normative review2013In: Global Health Action, ISSN 1654-9716, E-ISSN 1654-9880, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Legal empowerment of the poor is highly relevant to public health as it aims to relieve income poverty, a main determinant of health. The Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor (CLEP) has proposed legal empowerment measures in the following four domains: access to justice and the rule of law, property, labor, and business rights. Despite being overrepresented among the poor, CLEP has not explicitly considered the situation of people with disabilities. Objectives: To examine the empirical evidence for the relevance of the CLEP legal empowerment measures to people with disabilities in low-and lower middle-income countries, and to evaluate the extent to which the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) addresses those measures. Methods: Critical literature review of empirical studies and a checklist assessment of the CRPD. Results: Fourteen included articles confirm that people with disabilities experience problems in the domains of access to justice and the rule of law, labor rights, and business rights. No texts on property rights were found. Evidence for the effectiveness of the proposed measures is insufficient. Overall, the CRPD fully or partially supports two-thirds of the proposed measures (seven out of nine measures for access to justice and the rule of law, none of the five measures for property rights, all seven measures for labor rights, and six out of nine measures for business rights). Conclusions: Although most of the domains of the CLEP legal empowerment measures are relevant to people with disabilities from both empirical and normative perspectives, it is uncertain whether the devised measures are of immediate relevance to them. Further research is warranted in this regard.
