Innovations, Practice and the Future of Public Policy in India

About the Series

The field of public policy is broad, interdisciplinary, and multifaceted. It requires constant communication between stakeholders - including academics, practitioners, and the general public - to address important public policy design and concerns around implementation.

This series brings together contributions and diverse perspectives of academics and practitioners in the field of public policy in India and records innovative ideas and best practices to facilitate knowledge transfer, replication, or scaling. Public policy must be proactive and focused on the future and work on developing ideas that may be scaled up, customised or applied across jurisdictions. The books in this series focus primarily on the voices of academics and practitioners and offer crucial insights for corrective action and creation of more comprehensive policy designs. By critically analysing cases and policy designs, it offers insights into the feasibility of innovative models where theory meets practice in the pursuit of the public good.
