I wrote a 3 pager attached below titled: (Fair recruitment practice)
please rewrite it following the structure below the most important aspect it to tie the topic to one of the concepts mentioned below I attached 4 examples as well for your reference Assessment structure
A policy brief is a succinct document which presents research data and findings to a non-academic audience. It is also a way to explore an important, perhaps complicated, contentious or recent issue and for drawing out the key lessons that emerge from the research. Finally, it offers advice or recommendations for improving policy.
In the Assessment 1 you will write the outline for a policy brief about issues related to the module’s contents. You will receive feedback on your outline, both from markers and fellow students, and you will then develop it into a full policy brief to be submitted as Assessment 3.
This assignment aims to help you start working early and gradually on your policy brief, to develop its structure, focus and positioning. So at this stage we do not expect you will present finalised definite ideas, but rather sketch/explore (many) good potential ideas, that you will keep developing in the next weeks. You do not need to redact the outline as a fully developed draft. The document could be based on bullet points statements that convey your main preliminary ideas. There is no limit to which country or region you choose as your focus. Development is a global debate, and as we know development issues such as poverty affect all regions of the world in different ways, so you could for example write about poverty in industrialised countries. But please make sure you link your topic/argument to materials from the module, as you will be marked down if your work does not show any connection to the module.
Please be as specific as you can:
Geographic specificity may be useful, for example: you could look at specific regions within a country, or how your issue affects a particular stratum of the population.
What is the framing/approach/theory/intention you will use to look at the issue?
Which are the organizations that you aim to influence –for example: not just the government of the country, but specific departments within, etc.
Think particularly about how you frame your recommendations to match your intended audience interests and capacities.
Once you have an initial idea on what issue and target you want for your policy brief, you could look for and identify some research/evidence that you will use as the basis for the policy brief. In this way – rather than approaching the topic generally and trying to come up with good ideas and think about sensible recommendations first, and then looking for references that would help you to support them – you start with a couple of core resources/knowledge/evidence, so that you can think about the implications of that knowledge for your specific target as the basis for your briefing.
Please also keep in mind that policy briefs should be written in your own words, not just cutting and pasting text from others without attribution, and use simple, accessible, and appropriate language, avoiding jargon as much as possible.
Examples of topics selected in previous years include:
Decolonising development aid funding: Simple steps
Developing artisanal cobalt mining in the democratic republic of Congo
The proliferation of child food poverty in the UK during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Addressing the negative environmental and costs of meat consumption
Achieving higher welfare and more cost-effective outcomes from the cashless debit card
The impact of social media on the misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine: an anthropological approach to understanding and addressing policy to regulate social media
Asset-based approach to foreign aid
International development organisations need to take into consideration community perspectives in the northeast of Syria
Towards the elimination of child marriage and expanding opportunities for girls in Bangladesh
Achieving comprehensive sexual education in Peru
Ending poverty through equality of education in Israel
Inclusion of energy poverty in Mexico’s Multi-dimensional poverty index (MPI)
Air pollution in Delhi-National capital region
COVID-19 Learning losses and prolonged poverty: A need for immediate fixes As part of the policy brief outline, you must:
Identify an issue, topic or policy problem which is clearly linked to one of the weekly topics (all of which showcase examples of policy briefs) to focus your policy brief on.
Identify who your policy brief targets as its key audience, which you aim to inform and influence, and reflect on the relevance of the problem to this audience. The target could be governments (specific sectors/ministries/MPs/parliament), NGOs (local/national/regional/international), local traders (small-scale/large-scale/cooperatives/informal/formal businesses) or trade unionists (in different industries), local authorities (traditional leaders/local government), civil society (a parliamentary group/members of the clergy, a youth group), etc.
Tentatively indicate how academic ideas covered during the module could be translated into policy recommendations. Make sure you draw on and use some of the key references referred to in the key concepts for this module.
Provide ideas on possible policy recommendations, which should be evidence-based, actionable, concrete and targeted to the interest and capacities of your intended audience.
We recommend you use the following headings:
Overview – brief synopsis of the policy brief, summarising the problem it addresses, its overall evidence-based approach and the key recommendations.
Introduction – compelling presentation of the issue, its context, gaps in current policy, and why it matters and requires urgent action. This will motivate the reader to read the rest of the policy brief.
Research findings – relevant concepts from the literature, data and facts, and how they help to solve the problem, providing the basis for the recommendations.
Important things to know – things like key definitions, facts and cases, or impactful quotes. These could provide the basis for sidebars, textboxes, or inline quotes which will enrich your final policy brief.
Draft policy recommendations – concrete, evidence-based, clear, and actionable recommendations aimed at your target audience.
Additional considerations (not included in the wordcount) – on who your target is and why, the justification for your framing and your influencing strategy, and some key references you are using for the policy brief. This content will not typically appear in the policy brief, but it will help others to understand your outline better. You could also include a stakeholder map, as this will help you much in developing your influencing strategy.
A live session dedicated to Policy Briefing with an expert from IDS takes place during the week 2. Please make sure you attend the session or check the video recordings. We also have a dedicated forum discussion for “Questions on the assignments” where queries and doubts on the assignments will be responded.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
