The young people joining the programme at ISPP would be able to make sure that they would build their capacity to lead, as they move forward in their professional career as well as making a change in the country.
ISPP can add more than just incremental value to learning processes in this country. I am privileged to be associated with such an illustrious set of names.
All the graduates taking up this course at the ISPP would be required by various organizations, think tanks, political parties and of course, the government. ISPP is something that fulfills a very important gap in higher education in India.
I am really delighted that this wonderful institution has associated with great names including Vijay Kelkar, Shekhar Shah, Shubhashis Gangopadhyay, Arvind Panagariya, Nandan Nilekani, Shamika Ravi and NK Singh.
The approach to public policy that ISPP is taking and pushing for, is that we are trying to make public policy for the citizens, not for oneself or a group or a particular leader.
The Indian School of Public Policy was formally launched on October 23rd, 2018 at the Constitution Club of India, New Delhi by dignitaries including Shri N.K. Singh, Shri Rajiv Mehrishi and Shri Gurcharan Das. Notable experts from TISS, Twitter Inc India, Brookings Institution, Uber India and GMR established the urgent need for a new generation of policy professionals through a panel discussion.
ISPP's launch was received generously by mainlines including Hindustan Times, Financial Express, Times of India, Indian Express, Business World Online, UNI, The Hindu and The New Indian Express.
