Over a hundred students of the 26th cohort of the Graduate Certificate in Public Policy (GCPP) programme attended a 3-day online workshop hosted by the Takshashila Institution. This was the first of two such workshops of the GCPP programme which comprises discussion and activity-based learning sessions.
The sessions were delivered by Takshashila’s faculty and guest speakers, including Ambassador P.S. Raghavan, Shruti Rajagopalan, and Apar Gupta. Lectures covered key concepts like public policy analysis, economic reasoning, and effective communication for public policy. It also gave students an insight into India’s defence and foreign affairs imperatives and the role of technology in public policy.
Over the next seven weeks, students will build on their learning from this workshop to gain a deeper understanding and application of policy through a specialisation in either Public Policy, Defence & Foreign Affairs or Technology & Policy.
Conducted three times in a year, and now completely online, the GCPP programme draws students from different professional and educational backgrounds including information technology, journalism, law, finance, academia and government. Faculty comprises policy practitioners and academic experts who equip students with the skills needed to build the intellectual foundations of an India with global interests.
The Takshashila Institution is an independent centre for research and education in public policy.
