Employers should not discriminate against disabled people
1'05" 13 May 2016 Universidade Lusófona Lisbon

This video was produced for the Council of Europe by film students at the departamento de cinema e artes dos media at the Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal. It emphasises that disabled people have as much to offer employers as their non-disabled counterparts, and calls for non-discrimination in the jobs market.

The Council of Europe is closely involved in promoting and protecting the human rights of persons with disabilities, especially in the workplace. It works to improve the quality of life and independence of people with disabilities; and to guarantee their freedom of choice, full citizenship and active participation in the life of the community.
