Baithak: Conversations in Policy

Event Date: 31 Aug 2019; Time: 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM
Venue: A-69, Hauz Khas, New Delhi (CCS Office)


Last year at CCS Academy, we curated a platform for CCS alumni, young students and professionals to engage in themes and discussions around public policy; now popularly called Baithak: Conversations in Policy. Baithaks follow an open group discussion format where the speaker is also the moderator of the debate, the principal guide and the facilitator of free flow of information among all the participants.

She earned her Ph.D. in Economics, in 2013, from George Mason University. Dr. Rajagopalan's broad area of interest is the economic analysis of comparative legal and political systems.
Her research interests specifically include law and economics, public choice theory, and constitutional economics.

The idea of Baithak is to give a platform to all CCS graduates and potential course participants to come together for a discussion on contemporary socio-cultural and economic issues in the presence of prominent voices from the liberal movement in India. Its objective is to create a knowledge ecosystem, impacting the policy space in India at large.
