The Policy in Action Program was launched from Delhi in 2016. The month long program kicked off on Saturday, the 24th of September at the beautiful Anandgram on the Mehrauli Gurgaon Road. Delhi’s success and the overwhelming support of our students here, encouraged us to expand the program to other cities. We then launched the program’s Bengaluru edition in February 2017.
In both these editions, the program has managed to attract participants from a diverse range of backgrounds – lawyers, engineers, chartered accountants, artists, economists, political scientists, journalists, writers and even start up evangelists! This diversity of the cohort has become a mainstay of the program and is one of its key highlights today.
Another highlight is the opportunity to work for some of the most progressive MPs in the Indian Parliament. Teams from the Delhi and Bengaluru program have supported the work of MPs from across the country, representing a spectrum of political parties in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. Our students have had the chance to work on a diverse range of issues such as electoral laws, labour reforms, encryption policy, urban homelessness, HDI and malnutrition, to name a few.
The opportunity to work on real and live policy issues, along with the chance to interact with experts and learn from a diverse and talented cohort, have turned out to be the main attractions of the program.
