  • Abstract

    For the second time, nationwide data on the situation of students with health impairments will be collected with best2. The main focus of the survey is on the difficulties and barriers with which students with health impairments are confronted during their studies. Together with the 21st Social Survey, the survey best2 forms a building block for the creation of a data basis for the legal implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN-BRK). In addition, the data from the best2 study - also with regard to the HRK recommendation "A Higher Education Institution for All" - provide important steering knowledge for higher education managers, consultants and other higher education policy actors for breaking down barriers. best2 is a joint project carried out jointly with the German National Association for Student Affairs (DSW) and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The DZHW cooperated closely with the Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna (IHS), which already conducted the first data collection on the situation of students with disabilities and chronic illness in 2011, on the implementation and evaluation of the survey as well as on the preparation of the report.
