Takshashila hosted the second weekend workshop in Bangalore for students from the seventh intake of the Graduate Certificate in Public Policy course between 21st and 23rd of March, 2014. The workshop took place at Cobalt, on Churchstreet.
Over three days, students formed teams to design a policy for practical issues, taking into account multiple factors and challenges that go into policymaking. Lecturers at the workshop included Nitin Pai, Karthik Shashidhar and Pavan Srinath. Over twenty students attended the workshop. The workshop was the first of two contact sessions that form an offline complement to the largely online certificate course offered by the Takshashila Institution. The course runs for a period of 12 weeks and is suited for active students, working professionals and those of various backgrounds.
