Tizard Learning Disability Review
This book is a very welcome contribution to the international scholarship on human rights for people with intellectual disability. Editors Frances Owen and Dorothy Griffiths have produced a stimulating compilation on the challenges that people with intellectual disability face in relation to human rights...This book stimulates readers to think about how to concretely apply human rights. We are all challenged to develop right-promoting strategies across the spectrum of our services, and we welcome the views of people with intellectual disability on whether the human rights agenda has made a meaningful difference in their lives.
Owen and Griffiths, the editors of this book, present a most refreshing and comprehensive narrative placing the rights of people with learning disablilities in an international context.
