Working futures looks at the current effectiveness and future scope for enabling policy in the field of disability and employment. By addressing the current strengths and weaknesses of disability and employment policy, the book asks:·[vbTab]Is the dichotomy of 'work for those who can and support for those who cannot' appropriate to the lives of disabled people? ·[vbTab]Does current and recent policy reduce or reinforce barriers to paid employment?·[vbTab]What lessons from other welfare regimes can we draw on to further disabled peoples' working futures?Contributions from academics, NGOs, the OECD and the disabled peoples' movement bring multiple theoretical, professional and user perspectives to the debates at the heart of the book. Working futures is aimed at academics and students in disability studies, policy and welfare studies and those working in the voluntary sector, employment organisations and at street-level with disabled people.
