mindless

I am looking for a subtle way to say blind or mindless in this sentence. "An analysis of these policy approaches can improve their effectiveness in reaching women’s needs while warning policymakers on the blind (mindless) implementation of these approaches."

Thanks

    I would suggest: indiscriminate, haphazard, arbitrary or unsystematic. All of these are roughly synonymous with your original. There is also "injudicious", suggesting a lack of judgment.

    The sentence (which I gather that you are trying to compose) confuses me. It seems to say that the effectiveness of the approaches can be improved (suggesting that they are already minimally effective) and then seems to say that implementing them [at all] may be mindless. The sentences seems to be struggling for subtlety at the expense of clarity.
