Report from the WPSP Asian University for Women Institute in Bangladesh
We are proud to share with you the Report of the first Women in Public Service Project (WPSP) Institute outside of the United States. The WPSP at the Asian University for Women brought together fifty students from the Asian region including 15 students from Afghanistan to build an innovative incubator for women’s leadership in public service. The students engaged in drafting model public policy initiatives to address some of the urgent challenges in their communities and countries. The highlight of the Institute were student policy briefs which featured synopses of key policy analysis intended to frame issues, inform decisions and guide policy action in the economic, social and political environments of their communities and countries.
The Institute was taught by Rangita de Silva de Alwis, Director of the Global Women’s Leadership Initiative at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
