Affirmative action in employment ethnic minorities and persons with disabilities

"The book is a useful resource for those involved with affirmative action, legislators world-wide, and all people interested in making this world a better place to live for everyone including the marginalized. The aims of the International Labour Organization should be given support and promoted."
International Third World Studies Journal and Review, Vol. 9, 1997

Using the insights of eight national case-studies, this book examines current trends in the implementation of affirmative action in employment for ethnic minorities and persons with disabilities. It analyses how legislative enactment, general policy measures, and voluntary programmes have been tailored to particular national circumstances, and describes the policy implications of the successes and pitfalls of the activities highlighted in the case-studies.
