What Does a Career in Policy look like?
Editor’s Note ✍️
Public policy is booming in India 🚀 We’re so excited to see many people actively trying to build a career in this space, and we’re putting in all our efforts to ensure that you get the best of resources, opportunities and support as you go about making a successful career in policy. A big part of that is our YouTube channel 🎥 where we sit down with industry folks who have, and are still doing, great work in the growing policy space. In this series, they share insights on applications, CVs, networking, opportunities and much more!
This week, listen in on a conversation on What Does a Career in Policy look like: A deep dive into different verticals in the policy space. Click here to tune in!

This Week’s Policy Focus 🔎
Internet Shutdown: A Citizens’ Answer to Adequate Security and Sufficient Liberty
The Republic of India today has been labelled as the Internet shutdown capital of the world, a label that all citizens of the Republic regret. Today the Internet is at a loggerhead with liberty and security, and the challenge before us is whether we want security or liberty- something which the citizens of the republic must reflect upon.
