Abstract:

„The purpose of this review of documents on disability is to provide a summary of factors associated to policy outcomes regarding the inclusion of people with disabilities, in order to identify risk factors and best practice models across EU countries. This review aims to examine on one hand the situation of disabled people in EU countries and on the other hand, four large factors associated with social inclusion of disabled persons: (1) employment, (2) educational participation, (3) living condition, and (4) discrimination on grounds of disability across representative studies/reports/policy documents at the EU level.”
