Book Launch | The National Disability Insurance Scheme: An Australian Public Policy Experiment

This webinar is the official book launch for The National Disability Insurance Scheme: An Australian Public Policy Experiment, written and edited by Mhairi Cowden and Claire McCullagh. The book is a key text for scholars and public policy professionals wishing to understand what the NDIS was intended to achieve, how it was designed, and lessons learned through its implementation. The book considers how the NDIS has intersected with particular cohorts and sectors and includes a collection of personal stories from participants and families in the NDIS.

The webinar will include a keynote address from the Honourable Bill Shorten, former Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and a crucial early champion of the scheme. He will then join two of the book’s contributing authors, Jody Barney and Dr Gemma Carey, for a panel discussion and Q&A session about the history, design and implementation of the scheme, facilitated by Mhairi and Claire. Jody Barney is a Birri-Gubba/Urangan woman, consultant and trainer in Indigenous affairs and Dr Gemma Carey is the Research Director at the Centre for Social Impact, UNSW.

The book has been published by Palgrave Macmillan, and can be purchased online from: https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9789811622434
