RDS Now Volume 12 Issue 3
Population aging is taking place in nearly all countries across the globe. Within current research and policy, the relationship between disability and aging is often oversimplified and underdeveloped. Disability is assumed to be a product of unsuccessful aging, and aging as an obstacle to living well with a disability.
This special issue of The Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal (RDS) features eight original articles that analyze how disability and aging appear within research and policy in Canada, the United States, Australia and Switzerland. The articles in this international collection use interdisciplinary perspectives to explore the relationship between disability and aging in its complexity. They expose and challenge age and disability related myths and misconceptions and reconsider why global population matters.

Volume 11 Issue 3 Now Posted
The Fall semester is well under way and our International journal is receiving submissions from all over the world! The newest issue of the Review of Disability Studies (RDS), Volume 11, Issue 3 has something for everyone.
A few things from our exciting current issue:
Despite the passing of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in 1975 granting children with disabilities in the US access to education and integration in schools, many classrooms remain segregated today. Priya Lalvani from Montclair State University shares her research on this issue in the manuscript entitled: "Rethinking Disability and Inclusive Education: A Teacher Study Group." Exploring institutionalized ableism and the role of educators in the systematic segregation of students with disabilities in schools has important implications for inclusive education in democratic societies.
The tourism industry in Zimbabwe is booming. Despite the fact that tourism is a social right for all, and people with disabilities represent a substantial market for tourism, little has been done to ensure access to tourism facilities for those with disabilities. Oliver Chikuta draws attention to this topic and makes recommendations in his research article "Is There Room in the Inn? Towards Incorporating People with Disability in Tourism Planning."
