What works? – Transferable Factors Issued from Successful Interventions in Labor Market Inclusion for People with Disabilities

Teodor Mircea Alexiu and Theofild Andrei Lazar
Abstract—The paper addresses the problematic of socio-professional integration of people with disabilities, with emphasis on the successful factors that influence employment. The article is based on data from the research project E-QUAL, a qualitative study performed based on the Institutional Ethnography method, on the occupational integration of people with disabilities in Romania. Analyzing the transferable factors that led to success in ten interventions, the following directions resulted: a) the relation between the beneficiary and the professional is an egalitarian one, based on partnership and mutual cherishing; b) beneficiaries’ training for the work market and career counselling; c) legislation enforcement in its spirit without the intention of finding its vulnerabilities; and d) the partnership between the NGOs and the public institutions. These four elements seem to influence successful interventions and can work as transferrable models which can ensure high quality actions in the field of the professional inclusion on the free labour market of vulnerable groups.

Index Terms—Inclusion policies, labor market inclusion, people with disabilities, success factors in interventions.
