Killed By The State? Social Policy Abused

As a conclusion to her critically acclaimed Preventable Harm Project examining the causes and impact of the flawed Work Capability Assessment (WCA), Mo Stewart shares evidence demonstrating that the preventable harm of those in greatest need is government policy, and was adopted without ethical approval.

Mo Stewart is a healthcare professional by training, not an academic. She is also a disabled veteran of the (W)RAF medical branch. Mo has spent 10 years exposing the influence of corporate America on UK social policy reforms. These reforms include the introduction of the fatally flawed Work Capability Assessment, which aimed to limit access to out-of-work disability benefits.

A transcript of the talk is available here.

The webinar was recorded on 27th November 2020.
