For years business and trade has played an increasingly prominent role in Norwegian development policy. This paper discusses the role of businesses as development actors in relation to the promotion of inclusion of persons with disabilities. Are the rights of persons with disabilities in working life addressed in policy documents related to business involvement in the global South? Are people with disabilities and their inclusion in working life part of Norwegian strategies to promote investments in developing countries, and are there any engagements with persons with disabilities in the CSR strategies of Norwegian global companies when operating abroad?
