Discrimination and Human Rights in Uruguay - The Voice of Children and Adolescents. An example of good practice when working on the issue of discrimination

This publication was developed by the Uruguayan Committee for the Rights of the Child, supported by Save the Children Sweden regional office in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2005. Its objective is to visualise how and to what extent children are discriminated against and what legal means there are to counteract these discriminations to protect children. The book is meant to be a springboard to trigger debate, make the problem better known, to serve for training purposes and public mobilisation in order to bring about attitudinal changes and legal measures. The highlight of the report is the testimony of the children on how they themselves look upon discrimination. The publication also includes international and national ways and means that are available to provide protection of children’s human rights in cases of discriminatory treatment. It brings up the responsibility of the State and the civil society to act in cases of discrimination and encourages the inclusion and participation of the children themselves in the knowledge and exercise of their rights with the aim to prevent and diminish discrimination.
