Policy Development / Political Leadership
Public policy is essentially a government decision undertaken to pursue a specific goal or objective which may or may not be enforceable at the central, state or local level of governance. Policy-making is a dynamic process that is changing dramatically with the increased involvement from different stakeholders. For meaningful public policy, there is a need for input from the public. We work with institutions that work with the public for participation, thus providing communication between government agencies making decisions and the public.
Another way of ensuring that people’s voices are heard and determining policy-making that we employ in our work is activism and advocacy. Advocacy was publicly representing an individual, organisation, or idea. It is used as an umbrella term for many intervention tools, including active lobbying by letter writing, meeting politicians, running public forums, questions in parliament, and participating in various consultative processes.
