Humphrey Alumna Launches First Guide for the Implementation of the Right to Education for the Children with Disabilities in Romania

This October the European Center for the Rights of Children with Disabilities (CEDCD) has launched the first Guide for the Implementation of the Right to Education for the Children with Disabilities in Romania (Rentrop & Straton Publishing House, Bucharest, 2018).
The book launch, held on October 11, was hosted by the National Institute for Magistrates and conducted by Madalina Turza, the author of the guide. Madalina is also President of CEDCD and a Hubert H. Humphrey Alumna, University of Minnesota. Designed as an intense active dialogue, the event addressed current important topics such as the discrimination in education affecting children with disabilities, landmarks concerning the implementation of the rights to inclusive education for children with disabilities in Romania, and the access to education of children and young people with disabilities in the special protection system.
We congratulate Madalina on the excellent achievement in this field facing numerous challenges and wish her and CEDCD many more achievements in safeguarding the rights of children with disabilities in Romania. Last but not least, we would like to signal the presence at the event of Georgiana Pascu, an active human rights supporter, in her quality of Project Manager within the Center of Juridical Resources/CRJ, and a Hubert Humphrey Alumna at the American University, Washington DC.
