Travel to Delhi

Today I am flying to Delhi, where I shall lecture with Amita at the Knowledge Workshop of the National Trust, preceding their annual General Assembly. The presentation shall deliberate on the aspirations of persons with disabilities and their parents. It next dwells on how social discrimination and exclusion prevents persons with disabilities from obtaining their just due. And lastly examines how the Convention generally and the construction of legal capacity more particularly would assist persons with disabiliites in obtaining their just due.

On Friday I shall talk at the Jawaharlal Nehru University which is among India's premier Universities. My lecture will be about "Uncertain Physics, Certain Psychiatry", challenging the scientific status of the hegemony of the neurotransmitter based biological psychiatry. Implications on mental health policy making will be also addressed.
