In this 12-week networked learning programme for researchers and working
professionals, we teach policy analysis, economic reasoning, understanding
how governments work and what they can do, how to navigate the political
landscape and persuade people to adopt better policies.

Students are equipped with both skills and concepts that enable them to be
effective policy analysts and researchers.

Thus far, GCPP alumni have included scholars and students from IISc (CAOS
and Management depts), Harvard Kennedy School, Cornell, IIM Bangalore, IIT
Kharagpur and other universities, as well as non-profit researchers from
several think tanks and NGOs.

The course starts in June and the application deadline is May 5th. I would
be happy to field any questions from interested applicants.
