Post Graduate Programme (PGP) in Leadership, Politics, and Governance is a unique interdisciplinary course designed to bridge the gap between young talent and India’s democratic political entity and governance. The programme is targeted at students and young professionals who wish to make a career in the field of politics, governance, public affairs and leadership. The Post Graduate programme is designed to produce trained, ethical and responsible leaders, in short ‘New Leaders for a New India’.
India is going through a major period of change. The people are restless and aspire to a better life for themselves. Leaders from politics, media and voluntary organisations play an important role in shaping the discourse and policy in a democracy.
Fortunately, today the democratic process has become much more engaging and participative than ever. The youth is more aware of their rights and duties. They aspire to play a proactive role in the process of democracy. At the same time, the government and the political entity needs young talent equipped with the right ideas and competencies to keep pace with the changing times.

The methodology followed in the PGP will be a mix of academic and experiential learning as IIDL believes it is essential to give equal importance to both classroom learning and experiential learning. The classroom lectures will be conducted by academicians, subject and domain experts, policy makers, elected representatives, politicians, administrators, journalists, activists and so on. Experiential learning would include at least one practical session/activity after every topic, field visits to Gram Panchayat, Parliament, Municipal Corporation, State Assembly, Voluntary Organisations and Development Projects.
There will be two study tours, a short one (constituency tour) and a long one (national capital study tour). The former will be more of a grassroots study tour whereas the national study tour would include a tour of the Rashtrapati Bhavan and Parliament house, visit offices political parties, ministries, along with interactions with ministers, MPs and national politicians across party lines. Last but not the least, participants would be taught the actual functioning of institutions with the help of a simulation named Model Parliament and Model United Nations. There will be two internships in the PGP. The first internship would be a mid-sem internship where participants would be expected to intern in their home constituency. The second internship will be their major internship wherein the participants would have to work for a month with a Politician / Elected Representative / Ministry / Voluntary / Civil Society Organisation.
IIDL believes that audio-visual aids immensely contribute to learning. The participants would be shown movies, documentaries, and short-films which would help increase their understanding of the module they are studying.
