Next year the UK leaves the European Union. What will this mean for the EU accessibility regulations which currently guide our work, the new accessibility legislation in the pipeline, and disability rights in general?

I will also provide an insider’s view of how European law is travelling through Westminster during the Article 50 process to its unknown destination.

This talk was built around an article I wrote for 24 Accessibility. The video is fully captioned.
