ICED Conference 2019

ICED Conference

We invite you to join the 3rd International Conference on Disability and Development.

The Conference will take place at the International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED), London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London, UK and will be co-hosted by ICED and Sightsavers, in partnership with CBM, Action for Disability and Development (ADD), and Help Age International, and supported by DFID.

The Conference seeks to bring together people with an interest in research and evidence from around the world to discuss and debate Evidence in Disability Inclusive Development.

The focus will be on new research findings, methodologies and tools and implications of evidence for policy and practice. All those with a strong interest in better collection of disability data and use of evidence in decision-making are very welcome to attend. This event is particularly relevant for researchers and policymakers. Persons with disabilities are encouraged to participate.

Participants will have the opportunity to attend keynote addresses from international experts, and contribute to panel discussions, training workshops and oral and poster presentations. Keynote speakers and full programme to be announced.


Topics for the conference will include:

  • What evidence exists on “What Works” (and what does not) in disability-inclusive development

  • Assessing needs and unmet needs for disability inclusive development

  • Methodological approaches and issues in collecting data to inform disability-inclusive development

  • How do we use evidence in order to inform disability-inclusive development?



Abstract submission for oral/poster presentation is now open.

Abstracts up to 250 words can be submitted via this form. We will accept abstracts focusing on empirical data from primary research and secondary data analyses, or abstracts that drive theory. We particularly welcome abstracts focusing on the topics outlined above.

Restricted to one first author abstract per participant. Deadline for abstract submission is 31 July 2019, 5pm.
