Building a Europe for and with children

Too many people with disabilities, particularly children, continue to experience isolation, stigma and social exclusion because they live in specialised institutions.

The Conference "Human Rights- disability-Children: towards international instrument for disability rights - the special case of disabled children", organised by the Council of Europe reviewed current Council of Europe instruments to promote and protect the rights of people with disabilities. It focused in particular on the right of children with disabilities to grow up within a family and in a community context.
