Redesigning Policy Practices in Global Health

Although many scholars agree that radical political change is necessary to address health inequities worldwide, not much has changed over the last decades. In this specialisation, we will use a critical policy and political economy lens to analyse how political processes at the interplay of international and national governance contribute to maintaining the neoliberal status quo. Furthermore, we will discuss unconventional tools that will help you to bring about change.
