Equality-Based Public Policy Development: Views from the Field

Equality-Based Public Policy Development: Views from the Field

The Women in Public Policy Initiative (WIPP) has recently completed Equality-Based Public Policy Development: Views from the Field (August 2003). This report is an analysis and evaluation of its earlier document, Steps Toward a Credible and Inclusive Public Policy Process. The report contains the views of those involved with community-based organizations and with three levels of government across the country on what is needed to increase the inclusion of community-based, equality seeking perspectives and experiences in the development of public policy. The National Advisory Committee of WIPP is currently exploring how to ensure that the recommended actions identified by the contributors to this research are followed up on in a next phase of this initiative.
