Governing in an Integrated Fashion: Lessons from the Disability Domain

by Michael J. Prince

This discussion paper is the second of a two-phase research project, both of which are extensions of the analysis carried out in the Best Policy Mix for Canada's Children research program.  It derives from the Best Mix examination of governance and accountability issues in children's policy to describe and analyze the governance regime affecting Canadian children with disabilities and their families.  It identifies the governance and accountability structures that will allow an agenda of childhood development, family support, and social inclusion for children with disabilities to move forward in Canada.  The ultimate intent is to encourage changes on multiple fronts that will improve governing practices such that when we say "all children" we truly mean all children.
