Welcome to Policy, Process, Stakeholders, and Context

In this video, Yodi Mahendradhata welcomes learners to the section on Policy, Process, Stakeholders, and Context.
YODI MAHENDRADHATA: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the second lecture of the module on policy engagement. My name is Yodi Mahendradhata. I’m an associate professor at Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. In this lecture, we will be focusing on the importance of stakeholders and the context for policy acceptance and ownership. Building on lessons from the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we will touch on three key issues. First, we will discuss how to actually navigate politics. Second, we will discuss on how to engage the stakeholders. And third, we will also discuss how to appraise the policy context.

In this section, Dr. Mahendradhata draws attention to the importance of stakeholders and contexts for policy acceptance and ownership. We will focus on navigating politics, the power of engaging stakeholders, and the importance of context.

As we begin the lecture, think about how policy processes, stakeholders, and contexts interact and intersect with one another.
