Reviews for Children with Visual Impairment in Mainstream Settings

'Koen de Feyter presents the human rights movement with a challenge: to confront today's reality of economic globalization. Our focus of attention should no longer be solely the individual state, but the international community in its various forms and business actors as they increasingly influence human rights performance throughout the world. If human rights is to continue to set the agenda of acceptable action it must confront this changed reality. De Feyter's book sets out an agenda for human rights activism in the Twenty First Century.' - Irene Khan, Secretary General, Amnesty International, International Secretariat 'Koen De Feyter analyses the global processes of impoverishment and makes a compelling case for human rights. He passionately argues how a human rights framework provides the best hope for the most vulnerable to achieve human dignity in the age of globalisation. His book treats human rights as a living instrument. We will most definitely be using elements from this book in our work with communities.' - Aye Aye Win, Dignity International 'This robust and realistic narrative of the ways of making, and unmaking, of human rights in an era of globalization should be a constant companion for all those who wish to take the future of human rights seriously.' - Upendra Baxi, Professor of Law, University of Warwick 'This book provides a stimulating analysis of issues and actors that determine the status and enjoyment of human rights in the present day world marked by globalization and the dominant role of the market economy. The author argues quite convincingly that the exclusiveness of the market needs to be countered by the inclusiveness of human rights. Basing himself on a wealth of sources and materials he identifies a series of obstacles that impede the realization of human rights but he also opens up perspectives and avenues of hope for the vulnerable and the marginalized who bear the brunt of deprivation and discrimination. In his thought-provoking study De Feyter develops a broad and comprehensive concept of human rights that is at the heart of the striving for social justice as a common standard of achievement for all.' - Theo van Boven, former director of human rights of the United Nations and special rapporteur on torture
