In the modern era, people, infrastructure and governance are three pillars of development, and the emphasis is on building the capacity through innovation through disciplinary knowledge and analytical skills. The research objective of the Department of Public Policy is to develop competencies which empower researchers to challenge the real-world complexities of policies and their making in an appropriate and acceptable way in the society. Within the domain of targeted policy research, the current focus is on evidence-based policy research across diverse disciplines. Within a multi-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary involving the sciences, technology, social sciences, economics and governance, policy-based research pave the way for identification of policy gaps. Integrating domain-specific knowledge and data with policy perspectives, creating a framework for policy assessments and the use of problem-based approaches to analyze critical gaps are the major areas of interest.
We look forward for collaborating with researchers across the globe with common interest. Interested collaborators may contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
