From 20-22 April 2018, we organised the ipolicy of Journalists, our three-day residential policy training designed exclusively for media professionals, at Jim Corbett, Uttarakhand. 22 journalists, selected through a rigorous review from over 82 applicants, participated in the training hosted in partnership with the Atlas Network. We had representatives from popular national media dailies, along with radio, television and digital media like Zee News, The Indian Express, ABP News, Hindustan, Amar Ujala, All India Radio, Doordarshan, Aaj Tak, Hindustan Times, India Today and Lok Sabha TV. Shantanu Gupta, Political Analyst and Author of ‘The Monk Who Became Chief Minister’ was the key speaker at the workshop, along with Dr Amit Chandra, National Coordinator, NISA, Avinash Chandra, Editor, Azadi.me, CCS and Kulbhushan Sharma, President, NISA.
Recognising the critical role played by the media in steering debates in public policy in a democracy like India, the training aimed at introducing journalists to the principles of sound public policy, market-liberal perspectives in social and policy analysis and the challenges of public policy in India.
