I've been an activist in India working for rural labour issues like Minimum Wages, the Right to Information, Social Audits, State Transparency and Employment Guarantee and have been conducting research on economic globalisation processes and their implications for poverty. For my doctoral research I will be comparing economic policy elements in Venezuela and India for their implications on poverty.
If you are around on Wednesday of the 2008 SfAA meetings, please consider coming to this session, an open forum organized on behalf of the Public Policy committee, to participate and help support the cause of education in public policy engagement.
(W-41) WEDNESDAY 12:00-1:30
Open Forum on Uses of Language in Public Policy
CHAIR: HEYMAN, Josiah (U Texas-El Paso)
The focus will be the ways that formal, policy oriented language articulates with communities, scholars, and other language communities in the policy process (that is, it is not a forum on the policy of language, but the language of policy).
See you in Memphis,
