Some preconceptions are universal. Whether in Europe, South America, East or South Asia, in urban or rural areas, pretty much everywhere I have been I have heard young people explain why they dislike politics, either because it is boring or because they believe all politicians are corrupt. Did they – did you? – ever wonder what the world would be like if there were no policies, and no policymakers? Think about it.
Making policies is not just about sitting at a desk, writing reports and chatting with bureaucrats. It’s also about trying to make tangible positive changes for all.
