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. I suggest the most important factors may be who constructs the problem and which analytical lens is used. 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?
