In today’s global scenario, people are attracted towards management education and in order to fulfill the demand, lots of management schools have sprung up across India, providing employment opportunities to those who are technically and managerial qualified. There has not been a significant improvement in the number of institutes catering to Public Policy. Being the inheritors of an enduring democracy, we have both the opportunity and the responsibility to participate in the civic affairs. As responsible citizens, we need to know how the analytical, ethical, and practical skills are necessary to effectively engage in public affairs. Understanding this responsibility is a life-long duty and once must relish it.
The sheer extent, scope, and cost of the intervention of the government in society, the economy, and world affairs make the study of public policy a mandate for participation to keep the culture of democracy vibrant. Similarly, the amount spent by the government at all levels makes this an important topic. Being taxpayers, we have a vital role in effective public policy and the overall scope of the government in our lives. We also consume a vast and varied bundle of public services, many of which we may not even recognize as such. Understanding the policy permits us to actualize solutions to practical problems which are brought to the agenda of the government. These may be our own problems, of our community, maybe our profession or some problems towards which we feel a special commitment. Knowing how a public policy works can improve our ability to deal with these issues.
