Disability Policy Implementation from a Cross-Cultural Perspective
Verdugo, Miguel A.; Jenaro, Cristina; Calvo, Isabel; Navas, Patricia
Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, v55 n4 p234-246 Jul 2017
Implementation of disability policy is influenced by social, political, and cultural factors. Based on published work, this article discusses four guidelines considered critical for successful policy implementation from a cross-cultural perspective. These guidelines are to: (a) base policy implementation on a contextual analysis, (b) employ a value-based approach, (c) align the service delivery system both vertically and horizontally, and (d) engage in a partnership in policy implementation. Public policy should be understood from a systems perspective that includes cross-cultural issues, such as how different stakeholders are acting and the way they plan and implement policy.
