Abstract

Taking into account the historical understanding that disabled people as individuals and organisations have been excluded from participation and from decision-making in matters that concerns them, issues of voice in research implies empowerment. However, this is not meant to be a gift from those who have power to the ones who do not have such a power, but “it is about people empowering themselves” (Barton, 2007, p.32), it is also about recognising that “it is the oppressed that better knows about oppression, it is in their experience of oppression that resides the knowledge about it” (Freire, 1970, p.27). In this paper I will outline the narrative research I am conducting involving participants with/without learning difficulties, the role of auto/biography and the use of ethnographic fiction as a means of giving voice to the voiceless.
