Using the human rights framework to promote the rights of children with Disabilities: Discussion Paper
The Convention on the Rights of the Person with Disabilities was the first human rights convention of the 21st Century. Drafted 17 years after the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and 27 years after the Convention on Elimination of Discrimination against women, it brings a more progressive interpretation of principles and approaches to human rights and adds to the overall human rights discourse and understanding, not only in the field of disability. This is a fundamental contribution that has to be taken into consideration in our work for children in general.
