The research project
The Disability, Employment, and Public Policies research project is a joint initiative of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The goal of the initiative is to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the labor force participation and job retention of individuals with disabilities.
The DEPPI research project is a great example of interdisciplinary research. As a matter of fact, many fields such as economics, sociology, education, rehabilitation and social work are working together in this research project in order to develop policy recommendations based on ground truth.
