"ìpolicy has enabled me to critically examine the present perspectives I inhabit regarding policy design and policy implication. It has inspired me to gain a holistic understanding of markets and their ways of working in the policy domain."

Evita Rodriguez, FLAME Pune
"I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity, it has provided insight, fresh ideas and a liberal perspective. I learnt a lot both from interaction with facilitators and peers. I was encouraged to think more critically, ask more questions and discouraged from accepting things on face value. I think my approach to policy formulation has changed a great deal in terms of how I now perceive institutions, trade, incentives, public interest and govt intervention."

Shreya Rangarajan, TISS Hyderabad
"Textbooks provide a very one-dimensional and theoretical approach to issues. Ipolicy definitely showed the current trends interms of the practice approach and introduced me to new perspectives and ways of looking at issues. The most important thing is that in each session, we did not just stop with identifying the problem but also came together to formulate possible solutions to the same."

Shreya Rangarajan, TISS Hyderabad
