Learning Alliance of States to come up in ISB Mohali campus

The proposed alliance will comprise a leadership team, an advisory group and a secretariat

A group of state governments will be setting up a Learning Alliance of States (LAS) in association with the Bharti Institute of Public Policy at the Mohali campus of the Indian School of Business (ISB).

It will focus on peer-to-peer exchange of best practices and techniques to devise solutions to develop a shared repertoire of public policy related resources among states. Besides, it will promote collaboration leading to enhanced government performance management in states and undertake research on public policy issues identified by states.

The proposed alliance will comprise a leadership team, an advisory group and a secretariat. Members will include the state nominated ‘Knowledge Officers’, public policy experts and practitioners from around the globe, leading educational institutes working in the area of public policy world-wide as its members.

“ISB has the competitive and comparative advantage to create and nurture the Learning Alliance of States. LAS is an idea whose time has come and such an Alliance will be in keeping with the Federal structure of our system of governance,” Pradeep Singh, CEO Mohali campus and Deputy Dean, ISB said in a release issued here on Monday.
