This chapter explores how disability and the needs of disabled people are defined in the Labour government’s partnership-based urban policy. It examines disabled people’s involvement in one particular regeneration initiative, the Single Regeneration Budget (SRB), and discusses how SRB policy itself defines disability and disabled people’s needs at a strategic level. The chapter analyses SRB’s discourse of partnership and the place of disabled people within it, and suggests that there is a hierarchy inherent in the perceived relevance and importance attached to different partners.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the fore stark gendered care inequalities and the inadequacy of care provision across states. This article presents a feminist-ethics-of-care-informed discourse analysis of the representation of care that emerged at the Irish Citizens’ Assembly on Gender Equality – an innovative government-created citizen deliberation process. It identifies how care was represented as a ‘problem’ of both gender inequality and the market, and uncovers key silences, which ignored care as a universal need of all citizens and the significance of care networks to sustaining caring. We propose the necessity of ethics-of-care-based understandings to address post-pandemic care challenges.
