How is the employment inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities promoted?

An ILO study argues that intervention approaches to promote the participation of people with disabilities in the labour market are varied.
On the one hand, some states prefer to adopt qualifying and pro-active measures, mainly focused on training and (re)qualification, to complement the provision of subsidies.
Other states, on the other hand, prefer to adopt ‘workfare’ measures, i.e. the often mandatory requirement to accept a job in order to benefit from public economic support.
In general, social-democratic states, especially in Europe, prefer to adopt measures based on the first approach, in contrast to neo-liberal states such as the United States and the United Kingdom.
