Frontiers in Development Policy

"Frontiers in Development Policy" Course is targeted towards 'emerging leaders' in developing countries and provides present and prospective policymakers with (i) a broad-based understanding of the functioning and the complexity of a modern economy by focusing on 'what' and 'how to' of reformm and (ii) a better awareness of the latest thinking and approaches to development policy including the inter-linkages amongst policies; The Couse puts a strong emphasis on enhancing the participants' knowledge and skills to formulate and implement policies and programs, and to deal with the emerging policy challenges in a rapidly changing world. The numerous inter-linkages in the development process are often explored. The Course underscores the practical aspects of development policy by using carefully selected case studies to discuss what worked and did not work.
