Two IWP professors to speak on communicating with policymakers

On 12 September 2017, IWP professors Joshua Muravchik and David Glancy will participate in the Political Studies Association (PSA) Politics and Policy in Southeast Asia Specialist Group’s event entitled “Bridging the Gaps: Informing Policy-Makers — Engaging with a Non-Academic Audience.” The two-session program, offered in conjunction with the American Political Science Association (APSA), the Scholars Strategy Network, and Bridging the Gap, consists of a panel and roundtable followed by a hands-on training workshop.

Prof. Muravchik and Prof. Glancy will present to academics and Ph.D. students interested in using their expertise to “inform policy making, shape practice, and obtain impact.” As members of the panel, these professors will share insight into how they as academics make meaningful relationships with practitioners. The Policy Engagement Training Workshop will teach participants skills to build networks and better tailor their research to the policy-maker.

The event, which will begin at 10AM and end at 4PM, will be hosted at the Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs in Washington, D.C. More information can be found at the event website, accessible here
