Disability and the Carceral State: An examination of the criminalisation of people with cognitive impairment
In the current era of continual carceral growth, persons with cognitive disability are disproportionately subject to processes of criminalisation. By advancing empirical and theoretical knowledge about this phenomenon, this study will offer new understandings about the intersecting forms of oppression, including state-sanctioned violence, that render members of this group more susceptible to being criminalised.
