Policy-making is about devising solutions to help society and make people’s lives better. Yet often it can be disconnected from the lives of people it is meant to serve, overlooking valuable insights, perspectives, and world-views that might yield more responsive, inclusive and comprehensive approaches.
Recent political developments have shown the effects of this disconnect. With the rise of technology, automation, and communications means the imperatives to engage with people will continue to increase.
This module sets out ways in which policy-makers can engage more with a diverse range of voices and connect with citizens through a greater appreciation of empathy, emotions, and the very human dynamics of policy-making.
