Summary/Abstract: At least ten percent of the EU population is expected to be represented by people with disabilities, Europe still needs more efforts to promote their rights and ensure their inclusion in society. The right to work of persons with disabilities is laid down in several international and regional documents signed by Romania. The latest and most important one is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, a document aimed to promote, to protect and to provide full exercise of all the fundamental human rights by all persons with disabilities without discrimination based on disability.
