Seven students of the School of Public Affairs have just returned from Singapore as part of a study trip at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. The study trip is aimed at developing a meaningful, on-the-ground perspective of policy responses to gender issues as well as an understanding of the importance of considering gender in policy making processes. Through host speakers, seminars, and site visits, students tackled some of the most important societal pressures, cultural norms and structural barriers linked to gender equality, with a focus on Asia. Participants met with ministers, parliamentarians, business women and men, academics and societal stakeholders. Throughout the study trip, participants shared experiences and key takeaways that will ultimately result in the publication of a collective report to be published in hard copy and on the Schools’ respective websites.
The seven student participants represent six nationalities, and come to the School of Public Affairs at Sciences Po with a variety of academic backgrounds.
