The Delhi School of Public Policy and Governance has been set up by the University of Delhi under the Institutions of Eminence (IOE) scheme of the Government of India, whereby the University has been recognised for its potential to be a leading international academic institution. Accordingly, the DSPPG aims to bring together cutting-edge researchers, world-class scholars, public and private policy practitioners, and legal experts to deliver a unique set of research, teaching and training programmes. Our research programmes focus on a wide range of public policy and governance issues.
Our short-term training courses cover diverse issues to enable young academics, professionals and policy practitioners from the public and private sectors to impart knowledge and skills for enhancing work performance and career prospects.
From the next academic year, we will have PhD and M.A programmes. The hallmark of our programmes is the emphasis on analytical skills, analytics and critical thinking to address the nation’s contemporary governance and public policy challenges.
Our programmes are being designed to meet the demands of public policymaking and governance, with an emphasis on capacity building among the following groups:
Delivery of our programmes aims to ensure the active participation of policy practitioners and judicial officers, to bring an interdisciplinary perspective. We collaborate with various professional organisations to leverage our expertise, experience, and resources.
We work under the supervision of the Administration and the EC of the DU. The UGC regulations for IOE and GFR apply to us.
