The speedy erosion of human rights in India + Fellowship with the International Innovation Corps!
Policy Post #138
Editor’s Note ✍️
Hope you’re well! For furthering our goal of democratising the policy and social impact space, we’ve started policy chapters across 15 cities in India! The idea is to facilitate exchanges and learning via conversations on WhatsApp (and beyond!) while also facilitating interactions, meet-ups and career opportunities outside of New Delhi. Join the chapter for your city today and we’re also onboarding leaders for these communities as well :)
In this edition of The Policy Post, we cover:
🔹 A detailed conversation with Aniket Doegar, CEO and co-founder of Haqdarshak, an organisation bringing welfare schemes and services to millions of citizens!
🔹 A look into the disturbing takeaways from Amnesty International’s report on the state of human rights in India.
🔹An interesting op-ed on the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s advisory to intermediaries and its possible repercussions.
🔹Exciting opportunities with the International Innovation Corps, Internet Freedom Foundation and Teach for India!
🔹Volunteer to be a policy community coordinator in your city!
🔹Our weekly curation of some of the best essays, podcasts, career resources etc. from the world of Policy in the week gone by.
Do consider supporting PPI by buying us a coffee (or two!) here, if you find our work to be of value :) With that, we bring to you: Policy Post #138!
