Who should be heard more?

Undergraduate History and Politics student and The University of Edinburgh #college #politics #democracy #voices

Thank you comment icon Hi Cisy, Gurpreet here from CareerVillage.org. Although this is an interesting question surrounding democracy, how does this fit into your career goals? We believe that any question can be a career related question if given the right context. Could you please provide that context? Gurpreet Lally, Admin

Natasha’s Answer

For a university major related to History and Politics, one might allow for the possibility that everyone should be heard. If the premise is based on democracy, a communal space for varied voices and perspectives underpins the fabric that holds its mechanism together.

Could there be an opportunity to study specific populations in an academic setting as well as real-life communities? For instance, the history of native tribes as portrayed in mainstream historical renditions/sources and the politics that impact their socio-economic lives. Perhaps by learning about them, talking with them, we make them heard.

It sounds like a career in non-profit community work (or development NGO), teaching or diplomacy (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) could be paths to consider.

Stay Well,
Natasha

Jake’s Answer

Well, that largely depends on the question! Regardless of the question, however, the greater the level of impact a certain environment/situation has on an individual or group, the greater your need to hear from that individual or group. For example, a policy proposing to lengthen the school day would heavily impact families, teachers, and non-faculty staff at the effected schools, so we would want to hear from them more before making that decision. You might hear these folks referred to in relevant literature as Interested Parties, or Stakeholders.

Let me know if you have any further questions!

Cissy, Philosophically one should listen to logic and rational. If the issue is personal, one should think his/her intelligence and facts.
