The India Yale Parliamentary Leadership Programme was developed in consultation with the parliamentarians and the India US Forum of Parliamentarians. The University says it reflects the belief that exposure to new fields and ideas can offer insight, perspective, and new ways of thinking for one's own work.
Lectures, discussions, and private meetings with renowned practitioners in their areas complemented the curricular activities. Faculties for the programme are drawn from experts at Yale, as well as research institutes, government offices and the private sector.
The topics covered in the programme include Climate Change and Sustainable Development; Economic Risks in the Global Economy; Rule of Law and Governance in China; Poverty and Economic Development; Religion and Politics; Reform of Higher Education in India; 2008 US Presidential Election Predictions and Realities; India and Globalisation; Effective and Strategic Political Communications; Styles of Leadership; Innovation; and Leadership Challenges.
