Persons with disability often face discrimination and exclusion in ways that limit their full and equal participation in society. Such practices diminish not only the individual’s experience and opportunities, but also deteriorate cultural and economic progress for their societies. Public policies of many varieties have sought to remedy these inequalities. This research paper explores the impact of advocacy efforts organized by disability NGOs on employment policies in Palestine. After reviewing relevant literature, the paper presents findings from a unique survey administered to representatives of both government agencies and the NGO community regarding efforts to promote fairer disability employment policy.
