Fellowship Working TitlePolicy Studies in India with special emphasis on heightening flow of information in society and what that entails to teaching policy analysis

Abstract : The proposed study intends to be a survey of the current status of Policy Studies as it is beginning to be understood and taught. It also intends to focus on the flood of information over society - the outcome of the communications revolution - and how that will shape the field as it is practiced.

Fellowship Output: A paper based on some findings of the study conducted under this fellowship is available here on the website of Social Science Research Network under the title:  Bringing Knowledge Back In: Connecting Public Policy to public policy in India. Below is an abstract of the paper:

The academic and policy worlds have drifted apart since the early years of the Indian Republic. Can the newly emerging Public Policy field reconnect academia to policymaking? The genesis and evolution of Public Policy in the US holds important learning lessons. The raison d'être of Public Policy, the academic discipline, is to aid and inform public policy, the process; sans state imprimatur, cross-institutional coordination and demand-scoping, discrete supply-driven initiatives are unlikely to have substantive impact. Public Policy has considerable scope in India, provided academia and government join hands to create a policy ecosystem for meeting the specific challenges of Indian governance.

Economic & Political Weekly (June 4, 2016 vol LI no 23) has published a revised version of the paper entitled Policy Studies, Policymaking, and Knowledge-driven Governance in its Special Article section in its . Below is the abstract of the paper:
