This first book in the series focuses in particular on article 29 of the Convention. Public and political participation are explored from various angles, allowing for a broader definition of the article, moving away from the narrow understanding that merely just takes into account the right to vote.

The diverse chapters represent a range of disciplines and professionals; their backgrounds span from political stakeholders, to academic scholars, and NGO representatives. Further examination is also made as to how the rights enshrined in article 29 are applicable to deaf citizens, and how this has been ensured by State Parties and other political stakeholders.
