Course title: Applications invited for 7 days programme on Analysing Public Policy Issues in India

Deadline: 15th May 2019


There are three major reasons for exposure by India’s academic community to the discipline of Public policy, a discipline which is at early stages of development in India.

First, as India’s economic and strategic engagements with the rest of world are deepening and widening, and as geo-economic and geo-strategic environment becomes more complex, understanding implications of public policies in both India and globally has become even more essential

Second, public policies in a Federal State (India comprises 29 States, 7 Union Territories, and numerous urban and rural bodies), is complex. As role of government and of public sector expands, appropriate analytical reasoning capabilities for formulating, designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating public policies are becoming more essential.

The duration of the course is seven (7) days. The course uses lecture, tutorial, case studies, and Group Projects as its teaching components. The sessions are designed to be interactive, with ample scope for discussions. The course covers a brief survey of the discipline of public policy; tools for economic reasoning and how to apply them in a specific context of a given public policy; how nations and regions grow and why they regress, with Indian applications; principles and practices of effective public financial management, with applications to states in India; a discussion of key issues and challenges of India’s financial and capital markets, including current policy and institutional initiatives, such as the NCLT (National Company Law Tribunal), and IBC (Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code); India’s co-operative and competitive federalism; and preparing for India’s coming ageing society, including retirement income and health care
