This publication of the EUD focuses on article 27 of the UNCRP (United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Work and employment are explored from various angles, including the right to reasonable accommodation, as well as labour and trade union rights.
The diverse chapters represent a range of disciplines and professionals; their backgrounds span from political and institutional stakeholders and representatives, to academic scholars, and NGO representatives. In particular, the authors explore how the rights enshrined in Article 27 are applicable to deaf and hard of hearing citizens, and how private companies and organisations are embodying diversity in the workplace.
