This chapter provides a picture of the complex interplay of federal, national, and global interactions between capital, labour, the state, and policy making. It rejects a mono-casual approach based on global drivers of policy and employment change, adopting a multi-layered policy perspective. The chapter notes the relationship between these macro-level forces and the complexities of state, federal, and cultural factors (for example, first-nation struggles) that impact disability and employment policy in commonwealth countries.

Keywords:   federal interactions, national interactions, global interactions, capital, labour, policy making, multi-layered perspective, macro-level forces, disability and employment, commonwealth countries
