Christina David’s research is in the area of disability and human rights and in particular explores the extent to which the individualised funding model of support can deliver on its human rights promise in relation to key rights such as choice, control and self determination. This exploration of the space between policy and practice will identify where rights are being neglected or progressed, where and how opportunities and resources are enabling or limiting choice and where critical economic, social and cultural barriers are located. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) will be used as an analytic frame and point of reference.
Christina’s scholarship is attached to the ARC Linkage project, Auditing the Victorian Charter of Rights and Responsibilities. This is a collaborative project led by RMIT and involving international academic and local linkage partners.
