Dean’s Welcome Message
Welcome to the Indian School of Public Policy!
India is at an exciting and critical stage of its development. India has, and will continue to have in the next decades, the largest young population in the world. As societies become more and more knowledge-based, rules and institutions that shape local, national and global engagements will have to change to meet the aspirations of the youth in India.
Designing these rules and institutions will form the essence of public policy in the next few decades. Because they will be affected by them, the youth must participate in designing them.
The ISPP is conceived as the first Indian school of public policy focussed on the design and management of institutions and rules that govern society. It is being setup by an eminent council of senior academics, policy experts, administrators and philanthropists with a vision to develop a new class of policy leaders for India and the region. It will commence with a year-long, Master's equivalent certificate programme in Policy, Design & Management.
The ISPP is the institutional successor to several years of public policy programmes that our founding council have conceptualized and run in various forms, in colleges and universities across the country. Across these programmes we have graduated over 8000 students who have gone on to successful policy careers in India and the world.
The establishment of a new institute invariably affords tremendous scope and possibilities to its various stakeholders and that will certainly be the case at ISPP. Our mission and aim is to build a flourishing training and research platform and a vibrant community for talented and ambitious students, faculty and practitioners.
Join us on this exhilarating journey. Welcome once again!
