Certificate Course on Public Policy for Journalists

The role of media is enormous in waging the war of ideas. Given its importance as the fourth pillar, it requires high quality of ethical and informed reporting. Therefore, for media professionals, a better understanding of public policy, how it is formulated and how to evaluate its impact on citizens enables them to better report on important social, political and economic issues. Increased knowledge sharing expands their horizon to challenge conventional solutions and explore innovative community and market-based solutions to public policy issues which can address the problems in the long-term. In a bid to encourage journalists to increase the number and quality of ethical and informed reporting on public policy issues and expand its services to media, Centre for Civil Society is organizing a three-day residential Certificate Course on Public Policy for Journalists (CPPJ) at Guwahati.
