Summary: Save the Children UK and Sweden on behalf of the Alliance.The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities represents the culmination of years of advocacy by the disability community in their struggle for recognition of their rights. A new guide, published by Save the Children UK and Sweden, on behalf of the Alliance, looks at how this Convention can be used to support disabled children, alongside the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
"See Me, Hear Me: A guide to using the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to promote the rights of children" analyses the inter-relationship of the two Conventions and presents practical guidance on advocacy strategies and illustrations of good practice.
The guide is intended for use by child and disability rights advocates, and civil society organisations. It will also be of use to government in interpreting and implementing the rights of children with disabilities. It does assume some knowledge or understanding of advocacy and is not written for children themselvesOwner: Gerison Lansdownpdf: http://www.crin.org/docs/SCUK_SeeMe_HearMe_ar.pdf
