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
