Fishman, Michael E.
This paper is designed to serve as a vehicle to engage the broad policy community in a discussion about proposed research to be conducted at Cornell’s Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) for Economic Research on Employment Policy for Persons with Disabilities. The paper provides a brief introduction of the purpose of RRTCs followed by a description of the research projects to be conducted over the next five years. Because the projects are in the formative stage, suggestions about information that is most useful to the policy community will aid in targeting the research.
