Between the ears or between the legs?
How is “policy” defined? And, what role do researchers play in the development of policies? Simon and Deena share their view on how “policy” is defined and the importance of taking research findings a step further, and how to engage politicians and other leaders in our work. Evidence-base leading to policy development, or policy development guiding the evidence-base?
As a topic of interest in her field, Deena teaches Simon about transgender rights through Canada’s newly enacted policy to support inmates in their gender identity along with other current events.
To help Simon prepared for this episode, Deena sent him the following articles:
- Police, Jails & Prisons
- How LGBT prisoners are lost in the system
- Canada's prison system overhauls transgender inmate policy
- Transgender woman 'raped at men's prison' hours after judge blocked move
