This chapter describes how this book pulls together in a new way the many valuable contributions that are being made to the understanding of the efficacy, limitations, and challenges of disability and employment policy. It states that the book aims to both engage with detailed policy evaluations and to catalyse more theoretical debate about the nature of disability, employment, and policy. The chapter notes that the book's key message is that both policy frameworks and programme detail are unlikely to enhance disabled people's social inclusion if they fail to engage disabled people themselves in the policy solutions.

Keywords:   disability, employment policy, detailed policy evaluations, theoretical debate, disabled people, policy solutions
