In 2007, Renmin University worked with the Harvard Law School Project on Disability (HPOD) and the China Disabled Persons Federation (CDPF) to organize the first conference in the PRC on disability rights, which led Renmin to establish China’s first law school clinic on disability.
In the spring of 2012, HNMCP students developed and delivered a negotiation skills and consensus-building curriculum for the Renmin University Disability Law Clinic to give disabled persons organizations the tools necessary to achieve their advocacy goals.
HNMCP is teaming up once again with the Renmin University Disability Law Clinic to examine how stakeholders involved in the education of students with disabilities can better manage disputes in this area and problem solve around specific issues related to education access. The goal for this project is to make a genuine contribution to the education of persons with disabilities by enhancing the dispute management capacities of project participants.
- Stakeholder assessment and conflict analysis on areas where stakeholders might form consensus around education access;
- Development of consensus building or negotiation strategy exercises/slides;
- Report on lessons learned more generally and related to the consensus-building or negotiation strategy effort, in particular.
