The India Public Policy Network (IPPN), an affiliate of the Asia Pacific Public Policy Network (AP-PPN), will be hosting the 2019 Conference at the Conference Centre, University of Delhi, India, on February 4-6, 2019.


The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars of Public Policy, Public Administration and Public Management from universities and development sectors in India to present their work and engage in discussions on public policy issues. The forum will offer ample opportunities to build networks for future collaborative research.

Politics and Public Policy is the theme of the conference. We invite papers exploring the links between the policy sciences and science of politics and how politics shapes, and is shaped by, public policy. Theoretical and empirical papers shedding light on the opportunities and constraints of different political mechanisms and institutional arrangements, and social and economic contexts shaping public policy are welcome.
