Editor’s Note ✍️
Hello, hope you’re well :)
A big thank you to you, dear reader, for writing back to us with feedback, suggestions and inputs every week on how we can make The Policy Post even more valuable for the larger community at PPI. Starting this week, we'll occasionally highlight research work from the broader world of governance and social impact that has moved the needle and added to our understanding of the field. Look out for more such additions in the weeks to come!
In this edition of The Policy Post, we cover:
🔹A detailed look into the No-Confidence Motion in India
🔹An op-ed on election manifestos and what they reveal about Indian political parties
🔹An exciting opportunity to work on internet governance with the Internet Society
🔹Insightful research into building jobs and prosperity in developing countries
🔹Our weekly curation of some of the best essays, podcasts, career resources etc. from the world of Policy in the week gone by
Do write back to this email with your thoughts/inputs on what more we can do to improve on the work we do here already. Please do consider getting us a coffee and sharing this edition of The Policy Post if it was of value to you :)
With that, we bring to you: Policy Post #125!
