Prof. Elisabeth Wacker, Head of the Fellow Group at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy, is Chairwoman of the Academic Advisory Board for the 3rd Participatory Report of the Federal Government on the Living Conditions of People with Disabilities, which has now been convened by the Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, Hubertus Heil. The report is intended to show how people with disabilities live in Germany and what opportunities for participation they have. By means of a comprehensive representative survey, the views of those affected will also be included. Ten representatives from various scientific disciplines have been appointed to the Scientific Advisory Board, among them Dr. Martina Brandt, a former employee of the Institute and now professor at the TU Dortmund.
