iPolicy for Young Leaders in Mumbai

This August, we conducted ipolicy- our flagship introductory training in public policy in Mumbai, with 36 young leaders successfully graduating from the course. Mathias Pontoppidan, Strategic Advisor, A.P Moller conducted the opening session of the training, addressing the current state of the Indian economy in light of pervasive fears of an impending recession. He shed light on the potential reasons for the economic slowdown including the NPA crisis, poor implementation of the GST, liquidity crunch and investor uncertainty with the government.

The ipolicy also introduced the young leaders to foundational concepts in public policy analysis and evaluation, Public Choice Theory, the Right to Education Act, among others through interactive sessions delivered by our faculty and mentors including Rajeswari Sengupta, Assistant Professor, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research; Shagata Mukherjee, Assistant Professor, Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics and Sampurna Khasnabis, Assistant Manager - Academy, CCS.
