CCS Dashboardìpolicy: Certificate Course in Public Policy: Journalists (Hindi) | Development Leaders


“ìpolicy gave me a new sight to see things differently. It changed my take on various issues related to government and its policies. I became aware of how economic freedom for the poor is currently just a myth and I understand that if they are offered economic freedom in its true sense, they may do much better, not only for themselves, but for the society as well”

-- Shashank Dwivedi, ipolicy Graduate, 2013

ìpolicy serves as an excellent introduction to public policy. It provides an overall framework within which to examine policy solutions to social problems. What is the proper role of government, markets, and non‐profits in tackling social challenges? What role does the media play in forming public opinion and influencing public policy?

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to interact with our renowned faculty and meet other professionals in your field who are working on similar issues! APPLY NOW.
