IT'S SHOPPING TIME
States where women hold more political power are less likely to go to war and less likely to commit human rights abuses. We also know that feminist movements and women’s rights organisations directly address immediate service delivery needs within their own countries that translate into long-term benefits for all. On this module you will explore how policy making takes place in exceptional times. Each week we will examine a case study of a political crisis, considering how it unfolded and evaluating the responses. You will use the case studies to discuss the ideas of blame, agenda setting and crisis resolution in these contexts. Drawing on experience you gained in previous modules of designing policy briefs and political party manifestos, you will build transferable skills in prioritisation and working under pressure.
