About the Fellowship

Welcome to the Law and Public Policy Youth Fellowship (LPPYF) – Cohort 3.0, Summer 2024! At LPPYF, we are dedicated to nurturing the next generation of leaders who are passionate about addressing critical issues at the intersection of law, public policy, and social justice in India. 

The pursuit of justice has long stood as a cornerstone of human society, emphasising the inseparable link between law and justice. It is a fundamental and inherent human right enshrined in constitutions, ensuring easy access to legal recourse when needed. In contemporary times, the efficacy of the rule of law is intimately tied to ensuring access to justice. The administration of justice serves as the mechanism through which the rule of law upholds the rights and equitable treatment of citizens. This encompasses the timely and convenient pursuit of justice through legal avenues, underscored by principles of impartiality, transparency, effectiveness, fairness, and accountability. It is imperative that access to justice be equally available to all, irrespective of factors such as caste, color, sex, religion, or economic status.

UN entities provide essential support to Member States in enhancing justice systems across various domains. This assistance includes facilitating monitoring and evaluation processes, empowering disadvantaged communities to seek redress for injustices, enhancing legal protection and awareness, and expanding access to legal aid. Additionally, efforts are made to bolster civil society and parliamentary oversight, address systemic issues within the justice sector—such as combat impunity for perpetrators of sexual and gender-based violence and other serious conflict-related crimes, and forge stronger connections between formal and informal justice mechanisms.

In the Indian context, access to justice not only constitutes a fundamental aspect of the rule of law but is also protected by both domestic common law and international human rights conventions. Articles 14 and 21 of the Indian Constitution notably guarantee an individual’s fundamental right to access justice, a principle upheld by the Supreme Court. Central to this endeavor are legal aid programs and campaigns, pivotal in expanding access to justice for all members of society.

Our theme for the Summer 2024 cohort is “Advancing Justice: Bridging Gaps in Public Policy Enforcement.” In a rapidly evolving global landscape, it is imperative to ensure that our legal and policy frameworks are not only robust but also equitable and inclusive. This theme underscores our commitment to fostering dialogue, collaboration, and action to address systemic injustices and promote meaningful change. Our fellowship aims to empower young minds to engage deeply with pressing societal challenges and develop innovative solutions that advance justice and bridge gaps in public policy enforcement.

Throughout the fellowship, participants will have the opportunity to delve into various aspects of law and public policy, gaining invaluable insights from experts in the field, engaging in hands-on projects, and participating in dynamic discussions. By exploring topics such as access to justice, criminal justice reform, environmental justice, human rights, and more, fellows will develop a comprehensive understanding of the complex challenges facing our society today.

Moreover, our fellowship goes beyond theoretical discussions; it is designed to empower fellows to make a tangible impact in their communities and beyond. Whether through advocacy initiatives, policy proposals, research projects, or community outreach efforts, fellows will have the support and resources needed to turn their ideas into action and drive positive change.

Join us in this impactful journey, building on the successes of our past cohorts [Cohort 1 & Cohort 2], as we strive to create a positive and lasting impact in the field of mental health legislation and policy.

IMPRI & the Fellows Allied Contribution to the Theme

Embracing the theme of “Advancing Justice: Bridging Gaps in Public Policy Enforcement,” team IMPRI with its LPPYF fellows of Cohort 3.0 will bring a special nuanced edition of IMPRI Publication titled LPPYF: An Anthology of Essays on Advancing Justice: Bridging Gaps in Public Policy Enforcement. This will be an ISBN publication with our Fellows as contributing authors to individual chapters. Guided by seasoned experts, academics, and activists in law, public policy, and human rights, the program offers a comprehensive learning journey combining theoretical foundations, interactive discussions, and practical case studies that will help the fellows develop their chapters for the anthology.

The initial phase of the fellowship will establish a strong foundation by imparting comprehensive knowledge of justice, human rights principles, international legal frameworks, and the pivotal role of youth in advocating for justice in public policy enforcement. As the fellowship unfolds, participants will engage in creative activities such as poetry, painting, slogan writing, blog and research essay composition, song creation, filmmaking, photo essays and presentations. These activities will empower participants to critically analyze real-world issues and propose innovative strategies for their resolution.
