MA students of Global Public Policy program – Saikot Ghosh, Ekaterina Kuzmicheva and Otokiti Segun – take internationalization and mobility in RANEPA one step further by presenting their research papers at the IDPPA Annual Conference “Knowledge for Policy Making: From Practice to Theory” held at Stellenbosch University, School of Public Leadership, Cape Town, South Africa.
MGPP students joined the conference alongside with experts and scholars from the leading public policy schools in Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, and non-BRICS countries Malaysia, Turkey and Thailand. The forum discussed the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in national contexts, the use of quantitative assessment of national performance, countries’ failures and success stories.
The International Development and Public Policy Alliance (IDPPA) was inaugurated in 2012 to connect scholars and practitioners in major emerging economies to collaborate in the areas of research, teaching, and policy action. The member-institutions are all graduate schools offering high-quality master’s degrees taught in English that provide rigorous training in global development and public policy analysis for the next generation of policy-makers.
The main goal of the IDPPA framework is to meet the global problems of today through the accumulation of fundamental knowledge and practices eminent for elaboration of projects in the field of public policy. The pivot of IDPPA interests are politics, economy, management, sociology etc.
The Annual IDPPA Conferences are held in participating countries on rotation basis and approach crucial topics of modern economy such as Life in the New Global Cities, Public Policymaking, Future of Development Assistance and Global Policy Priorities.
