See Me, Hear Me: A guide to using the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is a groundbreaking publication promoting the rights of children.
The guidebook has been produced in colloboration with Save the Children Denmark, Save the Children Sweden and Save the Children UK with support from Gerison Lansdown, an international children’s rights consultant who has published and lectured widely on the subject of children’s rights.
Yanghee Lee, Chair of Committee on the Rights of the Child, described the book as "an invaluable tool for practitioners committed to bringing an end to discrimination against children with disabilities," See Me, Hear Me is the first book to look at how two UN Conventions can be interpreted and implemented to promote children's rights.
The guide’s analysis of the inter-relationship of the two conventions, together with practical guidance on advocacy strategies and illustrations of good practice in key areas like education, family life, health and protection, make it an invaluable tool for child and disability rights advocates.
See Me, Hear Me is also an essential resource for governments in interpreting and implementing the two Conventions.Download See Me, Hear Me: A guide to using the UN Convention on the Rights of Person with Disabilities to promote the rights of children (PDF 716KB)
