 Integrated Employment and Rehabilitation Services: New Evidence from Hungary

  • Ágota Scharle (Budapest Institute for Policy Analysis, Alagút utca 4, Budapest 1013, Hungary e-mail:

The Hungarian labour market has never fully recovered from the transitional recession. The employment rate of the working age population is the lowest in the EU and has been stagnant for the past ten years. The underlying reasons can be found mostly in the poor employment chances of three, largely overlapping population groups: uneducated, disabled and older workers. Of the three groups, the labour market access of disabled workers has been the least studied in Hungary. This paper contributes to filling this gap in the literature by briefly reviewing current trends in the labour market and in rehabilitation policy and summarising the main results of a recent survey on the efficiency of rehabilitation schemes. The main conclusion is that a redesigned system of subsidies could significantly improve the employment prospects of disabled people in Hungary.
