Why attend?

Public Policy Forum

Good policy making is a prerequisite for inclusive growth and development. For India, this has been a big constraint. The biggest problem with policy making in India has been its disconnect with ground realities. Insufficient and unreliable data and statistics also hamper the process of good policy making. In order to achieve the desired result it is pertinent that policy making comes out of its comfort zone and is devised on the basis of ground realities. SKOCH Public Policy Forum will identify policy areas in need of urgent attention, zero in on the appropriate policy tools applicable to each of the identified areas and then complete the package with practical pragmatic solutions.

Public Policy LITFest

Public policy does not make for popular literature. However, it is invaluable for a country’s growth and development. Almost 30-40 books on public policy are published every year. Literature festivals in the country are mostly Page 3 events, serious public policy issues hardly get any place at such events. SKOCH Public Policy LITFest is an endeavour to bring public policy literature to the forefront of public discourse and decision making.

Eminent public policy writers, policymakers and practitioners come together to brainstorm on how to make the public policy literature contribute towards decision making for New India.

MyTake

Public Policy Literature Festival (LitFest) brings to you myTake, which is a mentorship platform for thinkers and writers. myTake provides an opportunity to such thinkers and writers to make their work reach a national audience as well as policymakers. You may have an idea or suggestion which has been penned down towards making Indian policy better but haven’t had an opportunity to be published. myTake invites you to submit your unpublished paper on public policy for a national contest and the recognition. Top fifteen per cent papers will be published online on Public Policy Forum website and promoted as a rich resource for policymakers. Details at mytake.skoch.in
