Research Interests

People with disabilities and those of advanced age face a diversity of "barriers" in modern society. These include "physical barriers" related to housing and roads, "information and cultural barriers" involving access to information, "barriers of the mind" rooted in a person's consciousness, and "barriers of the legal system" inherent in social systems. While clarifying the actual conditions of these barriers, our research aims to remove these barriers through the structural analysis of factors such as the mechanisms that give birth to the barriers in the first place, the mutual relationship between different barriers, and the ideological background behind the barriers. We put particular emphasis on the viewpoint of and actual feelings experienced in life by the concerned persons themselves - mainly persons with disabilities - as the essential foundation for developing our research.
