The Indian Governance Forum is an attempt by Alexis Foundation to introduce the practical aspects of the Indian governance system and to present a hands on experience of the decision making process in the Indian legislative system. Although, the Model United Nations format has made deep inroads into the Indian colleges, there was always a lack felt of a system which could provide an insight into the Indian legislative system.
Alexis Group, the organisers of the Model Indian Governance and the International Youth Forum looking into the shortfalls of the existing framework has hence planned the Indian Governance Forum at the Hill Town of Dharamshala and its suburb Mcleod Ganj more famous as the Home of the Tibetan Government in exile.
Indian Governance Forum offers young leaders, entrepreneurs, students, researchers, civil society activists, journalists and environmentalists from all over India the unique opportunity to combine learning, creative enrichment and action-packed adventure.
Date: 28th – 30th June, 2013
Venue: Dharamsala – Mcleodganj, Himachal Pradesh
The main events of the Indian Governance Forum would be:
- The Daily Legislative Debate
- The Brainstorming Session
The Legislative Debate would see the participants vie for the competitive prizes and the delegates would be evaluated for their performance across the three days in the various levels of debate.
The Brainstorming Session would see the participants interacting with a leading personality from the field of Politics, International Relations or Public Policy.
The Indian Governance Forum which is being organised aims to present hands on experience about the issues which are regularly dealt by the Indian legislature through an experience of three distinct levels of legislature:
The Legislative Assembly
- The Lok Sabha
- The Indian Council of Ministers
Although not a part of the legislative framework, the Indian Cabinet has been included to provide an insight into the various issues which the Cabinet faces in running the country. The Indian Governance Forum is more than a meeting and is a seminar and competitive debate rolled into one. The number of participants has also been capped at 50 to ensure that the participants get ample opportunity to express their views in a healthy debate.
