This chapter analyses and explains the dynamics of disability policies and, more specifically, sheltered work policies in the Netherlands and reflects on the evolution of Dutch sheltered work policies from a European comparative perspective. It starts with a general overview of trends in disability policies throughout Europe and then focuses on the domain of sheltered work. It identifies key issues regarding the responsiveness of labour migration policies. The chapter then analyses the Dutch case in detail. It offers a comprehensive overview of the development of the policies, the public preferences, socio-economic and societal dynamics and their interplay. Finally the chapter compares the responsiveness of the Dutch case with developments in other European countries and tries to explain the differences and similarities.
