Last January, Inclusion Europe's Milan Šveřepa was interviewed by David Klimeš for the Czech news-server Aktuálně.cz. They talked about deinstitutionalisation, rights of people with intellectual disabilities and the use of EU funding to improve the social system in the country.
The European Commission has made a campaign against discrimination at work. This is important for many people
and also for people with intellectual disabilities. We wrote an easy-to-read text about the campaign.
The unemployment rates of people with disabilities are far higher than the numbers for non-disabled population. Nevertheless, numerous good practices show us which kind of support and assistance should be provided to people with disabilities to minimize inequalities in the labour market.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities provides an opportunity to spotlight supported employment as a strong instrument in achieving the goals mentioned in its Article 27. For this reason The Global Applied Disability Research and Information Network on Employment and Training (GLADNET) has set up a Research Network on Supported Employment and is now seeking for researchers on the matter.
