The Situation of Indigenous Children with Disabilities

Published: December 2017


This study focuses on a rights-based approach, giving attention to human rights enjoyed by indigenous children with disabilities. The main human rights that are at risk are the right to life, the right to physical integrity (freedom from violence, torture and cruelty) and freedom of movement. Another crucial right for these children, while often forgotten, is the right to participation and non-discrimination in society in accordance to their age. That means the right to play, the right to education, the right to be heard and the right to a life free from child labour and domestic exploitation.
