Promoting the Employability and Employment of Persons with Disabilities Through Effective Legislation

Overview

This is a curriculum development project in support of a prior effort funded by the Development Cooperation Ireland and The International Labour Organization.

An international training curriculum is being designed by Cornell University's Employment and Disability Institute in collaboration with the ILO and will offered through partnering universities in several developing countries including Thailand, Vietnam, Beijing, Mongolia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya and Zambia.
