Disability Rights, Gender, and Development: A Resource Tool for Action - Executive Summary
Year Published: 2008
Disability Rights, Gender, and Development: A Resource Tool for Action - Executive Summary provides valuable insights on the theory and practice of human rights-based approaches to development and contributes to this body of knowledge by designing innovative approaches to the implementation of the CPRD in gender and child sensitive development activities. Building on existing experience in other human rights conventions, with a focus on the linkages among the CRPD, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the resource manual is designed to provide an intersectional analysis of the different treaties and build capacity among all stake holders to use the normative frameworks of the different conventions within a holistic framework of interrelated rights. The first draft of these materials was developed for a pilot training program by the author in August 2008 for DESA staff members on the 'Human Rights Based Approaches to Development in the Context of Disability Rights'.
