Audience: Adults
Description: Policymakers make use of policy analyses to aid in framing and resolving complex issues. How the multiple methods of inquiry and argument are utilized in making cogent arguments depend upon a number of factors.

Each community, each discourse, believes that its voice has the potential to transform social and political institutions. My question is the following: Which voice is selected as the expert voice and why?
