• Vulnerable groups’ rights are in zone of constant risk Nov 10, 2017

    «In my childhood, I didn’t feel my disability among my family. However, outside our home, I feel myself in a zoo. People stared, perked their fingers at me and asked whether I can read and write. Now society has changed its attitude and I don’t feel such infringements. Nevertheless, there are still differences. In Western countries, people have a different attitude to people with disabilities. They do not pay attention to disability and treat them like any other ordinary person. In our society people treat to disabled persons like a hero, who overcomes all obstacles, or like a wretched person who needs a help" - said Seinep Dyikanbaeva during a discussion of the history and status of people with disabilities’ rights in "Summer School of Law".
