After the resounding success of the inaugural cohort- Fundamentals of PUBLIC POLICY, we are thrilled to introduce the second edition of this transformative course on public policy. Public policy’s intricate and far-reaching influence on our lives, both knowingly and unknowingly, can be a labyrinth to navigate. This course is designed to demystify this complex landscape by delving deep into the warrants, caveats, and myriad facets of public policy.

This new cohort will continue its focus on public policy in the context of India, offering an in-depth exploration of its underpinnings and intricacies. Over the course of ten enlightening sessions, participants will gain a unique perspective on the multifaceted challenges of contemporary governance. The topics covered will span a spectrum of critical areas, including economics and agriculture, foreign policy, urban management and policy, climate change and environmental policy, disaster management, the roles of media and civil society, and emerging themes like feminism in policy-making.

Their collective wisdom and expertise will guide you through a journey of intellectual discovery, equipping you with the tools and knowledge needed to grasp and effectively address India’s most pressing public policy issues.
