Academics at ISPP

ISPP trains its scholars to be leaders for policy action. Our scholars not only undergo a comprehensive academic programme in Public Policy, but are also rigorously trained in management, communication and leadership skills. The one year academic session is divided into 8 terms of 6 weeks each.

Academics at ISPP is designed on skills, ethics and leadership to nurture masters of theory and practice, with the objective of impacting change. The curriculum integrates classroom learning, skill building, application and leadership and management training consisting of foundation, core and supporting courses.

At ISPP, we believe that the core components of learning are peer-to-peer interactions, healthy debates and discussions. Hence, we developed a discussion platform that is rooted in academics. The forum will allow the scholars to engage in conversations on a range of topics and will allow them to link those with academic components from the various courses and workshops offered at ISPP. The scholars can use the platform to make posts, reply to posts, and like/dislike posts and replies.

Even faculty members will have access to the platform and can use it to directly engage with scholars. They will be able to respond to questions and issues that scholars raise even outside the class. At ISPP, we are of the view that scholars should be participants in their studies rather than mere consumers. The platform is being developed based on inputs and guidance from the class of 2021. Hence, the scholars are helping us further build on that view.

Domains & Experts

Nine domains have been identified as issues that India will grapple with as it transforms itself into a more evolved society. During their time at ISPP, scholars will opt for 3 domains for further studies. Through a combination of lectures and assignments, these will serve to improve the scholars’ understanding of key policy issues in that domain.

Engaging public policy stakeholders requires a sound understanding of the policy landscape, skills to conduct research, write scientifically, and the ability to repurpose scientific writing into communication formats that suit stakeholders. In other words, engaging policy stakeholders requires scholars to operate at the intersection of research and communications.

The Writing and Communication Lab at ISPP offers apprentice-style training to develop scholars verbal, non-verbal and writing skills to effectively communicate in development, corporate, and academic settings. The Lab also works closely with the Careers team to support students' career development needs.

The Antarang Leadership Lab (ALL) is an experiential lab. ALL aims to make our scholars more aware of themselves and their surroundings.

Public policy governs every action one takes as well as the consequences of these actions.

Policy Parallax is a monthly discussion group that brings diverse perspectives and analytical frameworks to bear on public policy problems.
