PDF - Social inclusion of children and young people with disabilities (2014)
The present report concerns the situation of children and young people with disabilities. It endeavours to highlight the challenges to be taken up and the political decisions required to remove the systemic barriers and counter the negative attitudes and social exclusion which prevent children and young people with disabilities from developing their potential, improving their quality of life and participating in social life.
The Council of Europe is publishing this report in pursuit of its goal of constructing tolerant societies without obstacles to citizenship for all and with all, including all children and young people, notably those with disabilities.
