The sixth iteration of the Ford Foundation supported course on how to engage in broadband policy and regulatory processes commenced today at IIT Delhi. An interesting mix of participants has been assembled by Dr Vignesh Illavarasan who is directing the course. He has also assembled a stellar cast of speakers, with perhaps the best gender balance we have achieved in this course.
The assignment is a central element of the course. It allows the participants to apply the knowledge gathered in the course to a practical problem. All these years, we’ve given them hypothetical cases. In this instance they have been assigned questions from a current TRAI consultation. Hopefully, some of the teams will submit their findings to the TRAI consultation.
