Deaf people in less developed countries around the world often live in difficult circumstances and face a lack of human rights. Many Deaf people and government sectors of different nations look to the U.S. for examples of leadership and in development of public policies and disability laws. Many Deaf professionals and volunteers from the U.S. with backgrounds in international development, leadership training, education, social work and et. al have worked with Deaf communities overseas to improve these conditions. This panel will discuss important issues in Deaf international development across various countries and our role when visiting or working abroad and in less developed countries.
