Concept Note: New India Policy Foundation (Part 3)

July 22nd, 2009 · 12 Comments

The Objectives and Activities

The two main objectives of the Foundation are:

  • Research and propose new policy alternatives to address pressing national issues.
  • Disseminate the work of the Foundation widely, especially with a view to directly impacting the course and content of national policy.

The Foundation will take up a number of activities:

  • Undertake research studies on existing policies of the government, both at the central and state level, with a view to examining the impact of such policies, and suggest alternative approaches where such policies are not delivering in the desired manner.
  • Initiate studies to propose new policies over and above what governments might have so far considered. This is expected to address the problem of short term thinking that is often prevalent in governments, at the cost of long term strategic planning.
  • Hold consultations, seminars, closed door sessions with policy makers, conferences on important national issues to stimulate debate and guide the policy process. Engage with formal (TV shows / appearances etc) and informal media for large scale dissemination and outreach.
  • Engage with and convene meetings with key policy makers (MPs / MLAs & beauracracy) and opinion leaders to shape national policy.

The Foundation expects to demonstrate tangible results within the first few years of its operation. The Foundation will try and forge links with like-minded individuals and institutions globally.

    Excellent Idea! I see in all this a yearning for the change for better. Its about time we took steps to ensure that our democracy matures robustly to enter the next orbit of development. We need more such institutions of all hues to replace the complete adhocism in current policy formation.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    One thing which is an execution detail but important in my mind is that outcome of research studies should include detailed execution steps.

    Management consultants with prior operational experience in India could be good candidates to perform such analysis.

    It could be Rand Corporation for India.
