1480699903 Spatial Flexibility in Working Life and Disabled People

Working under the conditions of capitalism is compulsory to reside in urban space and to be included in social relations. Flexible working which is the outcome of the changing conditions is offered as an opportunity for disabled people. This study analyses the data of the various field studies which are related to disabled people. Therefore, it is investigated how working leads to alterations in terms of the presence of disabled people in urban areas. In essence, working leads not only to social change but also to spatial change. However, flexible working is a working form which minimizes the relationship between urban space and disabled people. Disabled people have to be outside of their houses in order to have changes in urban and other areas.

Keywords: Working, flexible working, spatial flexibility, disability, urban space.
