The impact of austerity on the rights of persons with disabilities in the EU

  • Author: European Foundation Center


Since the onset of the economic crisis in 2008, concerns have been raised by all interested parties on the negative impacts for people with disabilities. This study, which was commissioned by the European Consortium of Foundations on Human Rights and Disability, examines evidence at both European and national level of the effect of the economic crisis, in terms of austerity measures, on the rights and status of people with disabilities. In particular, it focuses on the impact on the delivery of social services, income support and allowances particularly aimed at people with disabilities.
