Study Visit of Youth Work linked to the social and professional inclusion and integration of disabled young people

A disability, from mild to severe, affects one in six residents of the European Union (EU), equivalent to about 80 million people. 16% of the workforce of the European Union suffers from a disability. The unemployment rate is two times higher in this group, than among people without disabilities. Of these, many are victims of daily discrimination. In addition to existing national policies, which vary widely from one country to another, the EU aims to fight against discrimination. Within this framework, as well as improving and harmonizing the situation of disabled people, the European Union has implemented a law and a strategy for equal opportunity. The main objectives of Directive 2000/78/EC is to help people with disabilities to integrate and thrive into the labor market, encouraging member states to respect a general framework for equal treatment employment.
