Abstract [en]

Despite international regulations such as the Convention of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the global Sustainable Development Goals in Agenda 2030, everyone does not have the same rights to education. Children with disabilities are the most marginalised and excluded groups in society and also overrepresented among those who are not in school. Disability rights advocates are advocating for children with disabilities having the right to education and discovering new ways of making their voices heard through digital media. This degree project explores how these advocates act as change agents in the Nepal disability rights movement, with a focus on communication and the role of media. Through the lens of communication for development and social change, the theoretical framework outlines advocacy communication for social justice, and social movements as ‘experience movements’. The material was collected during a two months field study in Nepal between March and May 2019. A qualitative study was conducted with interviews as the primary method (semi-structured and focus group discussions) and field observation as secondary. The findings suggest that advocacy communication was used by all advocates and that digital media and information communication technology provided the potential to reach new audiences, without replacing the public sphere. Language and voice were highlighted as invaluable for effective communication. The movement was not limited to special education, rather advocated for equity, access and participation in quality education for all children. Digital, policy and behavioural changes were seen; people now talk about children with disabilities and inclusive education. Challenges for the movement (i.e. budget, human resources, collaborations, voice, defined target group(s), data collection) still persisted, nevertheless improved collaborations between the government and the disability people's organisations outlined a will for improvement in participation and empowerment.
