Centre for Public Policy (CPP)

About the Centre

IIM Lucknow established the Centre for Public Policy (CPP) on 1st September 2020 with a larger objective to impact the public policy process and service delivery. CPP, initially to-be developed as a think-tank providing expertise and advisory services to the government and related stakeholders, will evolve as school overtime. CPP will not only help direct efforts towards impacting society but will also establish institutional linkages with other government bodies and agencies working in this direction.

CPP will help the national and state policy makers streamline its activities towards achievement of sustainable growth in the long term. The centre will play an even important role given the fact that it is situated in the most populated state of the country and ironically also a state which lags behind key human development indicators compared to other states. The centre will focus on policy issues related to both rural and urban areas. The specialized areas in IIML such as Finance and Accounting, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Operations Management, Decision Sciences, Business Environment, Business Sustainability, Agribusiness Management, Communication, Information Technology and Systems, Strategic Management and Legal Management will contribute in imparting useful management skills to the participants from public administration and public policy departments of the government.

Vision

CPP will act as a world class centre on public policy with state-of-the-art facilities for facilitating research, training and dialogue amongst public policy stakeholders.

The vision of CPP is “To enable a platform for all stakeholders in the space of public policy in order to solve problems and create positive impact on society, through advisory, training, and research”.

To achieve this vision, the centre entails collaboration with renowned international public policy centres and think tanks across the globe. The centre will also contribute towards evaluation of policies being implemented on ground using evidence based policy analysis. CPP activities will facilitate stakeholder engagement and provide a platform for discussions and talks amongst the members of civil society, policy makers, industry representatives and academicians. Conferences and seminars will be organized to enable such engagements. The centre will aim at global recognition in the field of public policy. The state-of-the-art training will promote management and governance innovations in national, state and district level public administration

Partnership for CSR Projects

Corporate Social Responsibility, till now a form of corporate self-regulation guided by “corporate conscience”, will no longer be the prerogative of the responsible or ethical few. The recently imposed obligations would require companies with net worth of Rs 500 crore or more, or a turnover of Rs 1,000 crore or more, or a net profit of Rs 5 crore or more to spend 2% of the average of the last 3 years profits, towards CSR activity. The stipulation that such funds cannot be used for the benefit of employees and their families poses crucial questions: how would companies decide what activities to put their money in, what projects would be considered “social” enough to meet the criteria of CSR and will the projects being fostered by them be able to utilise their funds satisfactorily?

Concerned companies need the assistance of expert agencies that can screen social projects and ascertain their eligibility for CSR funding and their fit with the CSR ideology of individual donor companies. The Centre for Sustainable Business at the Indian Institute of Management Lucknow, which has longstanding experience in CSR research, teaching, training and project execution, can help companies in identifying appropriate projects and their implementation through renowned no-profit organizations. IIM Lucknow has been working with many such organizations: SPARC, Study Hall Foundation, Bachon Ki Duniya and many others.
