The aim of this research is to explore policy making process, using Jamaica's National Policy for Persons with Disabilities (2000) as a case study. Pursuance of this case study is an attempt to address a gap in the field of research, as there is a dearth in the existing policy making literature within a Caribbean context. The theoretical approach of this thesis synthesises two distinct schools of thought on policy making process. Using Eaton's thesis, that policy is developed within an extra- and intra-societal environment, the thesis explores how macro, meso and micro factors have influenced policy making process.
