This publication covers all major aspects of social policy in relation to disability in contemporary Ireland. New approaches to policy making, influenced by concepts of rights, partnership and integration, have led to major changes in service provision and legislation affecting people with disabilities. These developments are fully discussed in chapters on education and employment policies, health services, social security, access and independent living, gender, ethnicity, poverty, ageing, the mixed economy of welfare and disability, the emerging rights perspective for disabled people, and the legislation underpinning service provision. The effect of European legislation is fully covered, and comparisons are made with provision in other countries and in Northern Ireland.
