Introduction to Data Driven Policy Making | July 24- 25 | Course Instructor- Ajit Mani

Course DescriptionIn recent decades evidence-based policy making has been pushed to the forefront by governments worldwide for designing successful, efficient and effective policies. Data in the 21st century is on par with oil as an invaluable asset. The 2019 Nobel prize for Economic Sciences awarded to Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Maichael Kremer for their pioneering work towards alleviating global poverty using randomised controlled trials(RCTs) marked a defining moment in this direction. Data in the form of evidence can educate a streamlined policy making process. It is in this context that the introductory course on data driven policy making is designed to understand topics such as policy development, monitoring and evaluation, participatory policy planning and application of evidence based data analysis.
