Women and Policy Change
you will discuss the political and legal dynamics of your issue. Any policy discussion happens within a political context, and the details of that political context, including its structure, powers, stakeholders, and more, help determine which types of policy solutions might be viable. Which stakeholders and domains are involved in and affected by this issue? What are their positions and why, what are the central conflicts and the areas of common ground? What policy context is the issue being discussed in (local, state, national, international, judicial, bureaucratic, legislative) and how will that context affect what is and is not possible?
