Research and publications

Research is a key component of our strategy for mainstreaming equality. It identifies issues to be addressed, provides the evidence to support action and can help signpost appropriate solutions to problems. The following pieces of research have been commissioned by the Equality Unit on disability.

This list is not exhaustive and will be added to over time.

In addition the Executive has compiled a High Level Summary of Equality Statistics: Key Trends for Scotland 2006 and has developed a Portal to Resources and Information on Mainstreaming Equality (PRIME). PRIME is a collection of equality related (web-based) resources, designed to help policy makers and researchers understand the broad range of equality issues, including disability, that have relevancy across policy areas. The reports referenced on PRIME will give you a sense of how an equality issue can impact on a particular area and how the needs of different equality groups should be considered when embarking on a research or policy project.
