Inclusion in professional life

Dear Sir or Madam,

There are two million people in Germany who are disabled but in the perfect employable age. But still it is very difficult for them to find a job in the free economy. Before we can talk about the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities there is still a lot to do. Find out more about the current status in Germany and which projects there are to include people with disabilities in our Topic of the Month: "Inclusion in professional life".

Enjoy reading!
