The Hindu Centre will host on a rotational basis short-term scholars to work on projects for a period of 12 to 16 weeks that will examine issues of more immediacy on the national agenda. Public policy practitioners and bureaucrats would be strong candidates for such scholarships.
Upon completion of the projects, the Public Policy Scholars are expected to produce Papers/Reports containing conclusions or findings based on original explorations of current political or policy issues. The Centre places a premium on studies that will offer fresh perspectives on long-standing challenges or explore new and hitherto unexplored issues on the public agenda, reflecting the changing contours of the wider Indian public discourse. The conclusions of such explorations should add up to original policy approaches to the issues under study.
Your mission is a very important one, and the Delhi Policy Group would be happy to collaborate wherever you think suitable.- Radha Kumar, Director, Delhi Policy Group
Congratulations on your new initiative. I think this is the first time a newspaper is starting something like this. Only The Hindu can do this. Since there is a good coincidence now, will the Centre take up Kamal's film 'Vishwaroopam" issue as it does not seem to be Kamal Vs Muslims but only Kamal Vs TN Govt. I am deeply concerned that such issues should not crop up in future.- KUMARASWAMY SUNDAR
At least now 'The Hindu' should have avoided repeating "The Hindu" in the name of this research centre ! What is wrong with a simple name like "Centre for Politics and Public Policy" ?!- Pasta
