"Just published – The DVD "A world for Inclusion: Ensuring Education for All through the UN Disability Convention"

15-08-2008 - This 20-minute DVD concerns the 2006 UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, in particular article 24 on education. Using footage from schools in Kenya, Finland and Turkey, it addresses the situation of children with disabilities worldwide and the importance of getting them into school. It also contains interviews and commentary from key stakeholders and experts and some 50 educational resources such as toolkits and policy guidelines.

The aim of this DVD is to raise awareness about this new Convention, which entered into force in April 2008, and encourage its implementation.

There are over 650 million persons with disabilities in the world. Between 30 and 40% of the world’s over 72 million out-of-school children are disabled, according to the 2008 EFA Global Monitoring Report. Most of these children live in developing countries. This poses a significant challenge to realizing the right to education, which is central to ensuring all other human rights.

The DVD has been developed and produced by UNESCO and its Education for All Flagship on the Right to Education for Persons with Disabilities. The film is subtitled in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish and Russian. Complimentary copies can be requested from Knowledge Management Services, Education Sector, UNESCO, 7 place de Fontenoy, 75352 Paris 07 SP, France or by e-mail to edknowledge@unesco.org
