The Employment Situation of People with Disabilities in Lebanon: Challenges and Opportunities
Wehbi, Samantha; El-Lahib, Y.
Disability & Society, v22 n4 p371-382 Jun 2007
This article presents the findings of a study on the employment situation of people with disabilities in a rural region in Lebanon. The study was conducted as one of the activities of a community development project that saw the establishment of a job centre for people with disabilities. The majority of the study's 200 participants were unemployed, and many had never been employed. Other participants were mostly self-employed, with many of them working from home. The article discusses obstacles to finding and keeping a job and ends with recommendations for change at the level of community intervention, policy and research.
