This gem of a resource was shared with me very recently by a New Zealand Deaf advocate and I wanted to share it with my readers and fellow global advocates.
The World Federation of the Deaf organization, located in Helsinki, is a global organization for the Deaf that advocates, promotes and enriches the human rights of Deaf people worldwide. Part of its mission is endorsing research projects like this report so that statistics on Deaf people, issues and services are brought to light so that the governments, organizations and people of interest can become more aware of the pressing issues in their own country.
Mr. Colin Allen and Ms. Hilde Haualand collaborated with WFD and several other leading Deaf organizations to create the “Deaf and Human Rights” report. Brilliant and generous as they are, WFD made it available to the public – you can choose to view this in Microsoft Word program or PDF format.
