ISD Program To Train Politicians Of Tomorrow

'By 2047, we aim to have 25 per cent principled politicians across all elected positions in India'

Indian School of Democracy launched its flagship, 9-month executive program, The Good Politician (TGP) on India's 75th Independence Day. TGP is a program for aspiring grassroots political leaders who aim to contest elections as sarpanch or councillor. After a rigorous selection process, a total of 50 participants from 14 states have been selected into the cohort for TGP 2021. During the course of the program, the cohort will interact with prominent politicians and other guest faculty.

Indian School of Democracy (ISD) started off its journey in 2018 as a non-partisan organization with a dream to strengthen India's democracy by nurturing principled leaders with moral courage and imagination. The cohort of The Good Politician will be contesting local elections in the coming 2-3 years and ISD aims to have a support system for them and not just end the program in nine months. We understand that the gestation period is long in politics and it will take a long-term support system to enable our alumni in the current political system.
