The challenge of implementing state disability policy to achieve second generation rights for people with disabilities

Bigby, Christine,

Academic Literature

2007

This paper draws on the policy implementation literature and uses the Victorian State Disability Plan as an exemplar to explore the tasks, obstacles, tensions and conflicts of implementing disability policy. It is not an analysis of the implementation of the State Plan, rather it sets out issues to be considered and questions to be asked in planning for its implementation, and in realising social rights for people with disabilities. Throughout the paper I draw on the situation of people with intellectual disabilities to illustrate points, as they are the largest sub-group of people with life long disabilities and service users.
