Additional Information: This chapter appears in the highly regarded international Disability Studies Handbook - a collection of invited contributions by international experts in the field of Disability Studies. The chapter provides a critical engagement with theoretical issues relating to cross-cultural research in disability and education. Seeking to explore the value and challenges of the Social Model of disability in comparative research, the chapter considers the nature of cross-cultural enquiry and the challenges of 'policy borrowing' and the 'export' of values and terminology. It explores conceptual, theoretcical and methodological issues involved in contributing to the development of emancipatory research. Contribution by F.Armstrong: 50%
