Non-state actors engagement in policy process through public diplomacy tools
Policy Process provides a systematic way to develop policies that can help address public problems. The policy process includes six domains, including non-state actors engagement as key stakeholders. Non-state actors include organizations and individuals that are not affiliated with, directed by, or funded through the government.
Although the policy cycle may appear to be an ordered process that begins at one point and ends at another, policy-making can begin or be abandoned or altered at any point of the cycle.
Identify need steps in the development of a policy and help us to develop it.There is a recognised set of stages that policy development has to go through before a bill can be presented to parliament. This can take some time and is likely to involve (formal or informal) consultation with concerned stakeholders before the bill is drafted. The bill may also be amended by legislators, providing additional avenues by which interested parties can influence its content.
Note the different opportunities for non-state stakeholders to influence policy-making that each channel offers.
