Accessibility – An Isolated Need : Eleven people with visual impairment describe experiences of accessibility in the public environment in the city of Stockholm. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to learn how social structures can enable accessibility, by asking persons with visual impairment about their experiences of accessibility in the public environment in the city of Stockholm. Eleven adults with visual impairments, living in the city of Stockholm, were interviewed using two separate focus groups. The study was carried out with the objective to allow for the participants to be involved in the research process. The resulting data was analyzed on the basis of Nancy Fraser’s theory on social justice, focusing on the conceptions; needs, politicised needs, redistribution, recognition and misrecognition. Qualitative findings were reported on the participants’ descriptions of; the Handicap Political Programme of Stockholm as a programme encompassing high ambitions with limited practical influence on every day life, barriers and facilitators for accessibility in the city of Stockholm and equality as one consequence of a society accessible for people with visual impairment. The study illustrated that different facilitators, depending on the context, and intervention by the society are required in order to enable accessibility for all members of society.
