Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper presents an integration of insights from critical disabilities studies, child rights and social exclusion in theory and practice and is conceptualized from two keynote presentations given by Dr. John Davis and Mr. Luke Melchior at Investment and Citizenship Towards a Transdisciplinary Dialogue in Child Rights, at Brock University Canada. In addition, the lived experience of disability is at the centre of this discussion rather than being the object of inquiry, providing a nuanced experiential perspective. The aim of this collaboration is to emphasise that young peoples' rights from the perspective of critical disabilities studies may be informed by an analysis of power relations and the five principles of protection, prevention, provision, participation, and perception (5 P's).
