Kort beskrivning

School and post-school pathways of young people with functional disabilities. A recently published report from the UN presents alarming information regarding the situation of the disabled in Sweden. For instance, a 100 percent increase in unemployment and a dramatic increase of suicide rates are reported for the functionally disabled in Sweden since 2008. As compared to individuals without disabilities, young people with functional disability are less represented both within higher education and the labor market in Sweden. The situation in other countries for this group is mixed.
