About Christopher Prinz
Christopher Prinz is a Senior Policy Analyst in the Skills and Employability Division of OECD’s Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs. He joined the OECD in early 2000 and has ever since been responsible for the work of the Organisation on the links between health, disability and the labour market. Christopher is the author of around 30 OECD reports – including OECD’s very first report on disability policy issues back in 2002 (“Transforming Disability into Ability”) – and the architect of OECD’s Council Recommendation on Integrated Mental Health, Skills and Work Policy endorsed by employment and health ministers of all OECD countries in early 2016 and the underlying OECD reports (“Fit Mind, Fit Job”, 2015, and “Fitter Minds, Fitter Jobs”, 2021). Prior to joining the OECD, Christopher worked as a researcher at the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research (1994-1999) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (1989-1994). Christopher holds degrees in Statistics (MA) and Demography (PhD) from the University of Vienna.
