Speak up! Giving a voice to Europe’s most vulnerable children: About the rights of deaf and hard-of-hearing children in Sweden
2012 (English)Report (Other academic)
Speak up! Giving a voice to Europe's most vulnerable children will focus on children aged 12–15 years belonging to particularly vulnerable groups in eight European countries. There are children from the travelling community (travellers), Roma children, children with disabilities, children living in poor urban neighbourhoods, unaccompanied refugee children, refugee children, and children taken into care. These are categories of children whose rights are often violated and whose voices are less likely to be heard. The study will also include children from regular groups from the same eight countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, and the UK.
The rights to health care and special care are important for the deaf or hard-of-hearing children in Sweden. It is also important that children are entitled by adults to protection from sexual exploitation and that children have the right to express their opinion. The articles that started more of engaged discussion was the right to education and to information. The students gave several examples from their everyday life when they experienced problematic situations or discrimination
