The launch of the Delhi Citizens' Handbook 2017 and a panel discussion on “Good Governance and Development: Strategic Performance and Reforms”.
29 August, 2017
NCUI, New Delhi | 4:00-6:00 PM
The Delhi Citizens' Handbook features research papers assessing the impact and relevance of policies that shape the lives of ordinary citizens in the national capital on eight core areas of urban governance: Administration, Education, Public Healthcare, Water and Sewage, Labour and Employment, Food and Civil Supplies, Public Transport and Women's Safety, and Housing Infrastructure. The Handbook has been prepared with the aim of functioning as a critical resource for productive public intervention and for ensuring an informed discussion on achieving effective and accountable governance.
The panel discussion will be centered on exploring the idea of governance and development, taking from the policy shortcomings addressed in every chapter of the Handbook. It will also address the critical questions of how governance and developmental reforms, for instance the recent e-governance initiative, can take place in a country like ours, and what the expected role of governmental and non-governmental institutions will be in this process.

CCS Colloquium is a two-day (three nights) residential program and forum for in-depth discussion centred on a chosen theme. The Colloquium provides participants an opportunity to disentangle themselves from the distractions of everyday life to reflect on issues of fundamental and enduring importance. Our hope is that participants will go on to share their advanced understandings and to develop innovative ideas and approaches for the advancement of liberalism today.
Connecting with old friends and new ideas! Having launched it's first student seminar on public policy in 1998 (Liberty and Society Seminar), CCS Academy has completed 20th year of engaging with the young minds on liberal approach to public policy. To mark this two-decade long engagement, we are inviting all the Alumni based in Mumbai to come for a fun evening of chats and coffee.
Enjoy a fun Sunday evening connecting with the CCS alumni network at a picnic in Cubbon Park!
Whether it's through Liberty and Society Seminars, ISPP, ipolicy or internships, what we value most about our journey over the past two decades is the continued support of our alumni. We'd love to hear what you've been up to, your favourite memory from a CCS program, and what you'd like to see more of from us at CCS.
We're excited to invite you to a Sunday Picnic at Cubbon Park, for CCS ALUMNI on 30 April at 4pm. What better way to spend an evening than catching up on old times, meeting friends, walking down the memory lane, discussing ideas and munching on some great food! Please spread the word among your fellow batchmates who were a part of your group at CCS Academy programs and mark your calendars. Feel free to bring a friend along.
