Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

Nearly 13 percent of Turkey’s population is disabled, and yet there are still leaps and bounds to be made with regard to equality, accessibility, and employment opportunities for the disabled community. From the perspective of his involvement in providing disability services in Turkey as well as around the globe, the author argues that Turkish businesses and the government need to see the value added in employing members of the disabled community, many of which have untapped skill sets. The author also emphasizes the vital importance of ending discrimination against disabled people in Turkey and providing the opportunity for their meaningful participation in public life.
