Conference – The art of human rights – Spain
May 25, 2019 - May 28, 2019
Youth with disabilities are one of the most marginalized and excluded groups of youth, experiencing widespread violations of their rights. Discrimination arises not as a result of the intrinsic nature of young person disability, but rather, as a consequence of lack of understanding and knowledge of its causes and implications, fear of difference, fear of contagion or contamination, or negative religious or cultural views of disability.
It is further compounded by poverty, social isolation, humanitarian emergencies, lack of services and support, and a hostile and inaccessible environment. Too often, youth with disabilities are defined and judged by what they lack rather than what they have. Their exclusion and invisibility serves to render them uniquely vulnerable, denying them respect for their dignity, their individuality, even their right to life itself.
Main project objectives are to discuss importance of cross-sector cooperation, to introduce youth workers with legal mechanisms of human rights protections and to create open space for best practice sharing.
