Message from the Director

The Centre for Public Policy and Governance at FC College aspires to promote inter-disciplinary teaching, academic and policy relevant discourse on Public Policy and Governance. Since its inception in July 2007, the Centre has initiated and sustained its Monthly Seminar Series, inviting eminent scholars and policy makers, while encouraging FCC faculty to share their research in the Series. These deliberations are shared with the stakeholders and public through CPPG’s Research and News Quarterly. It is only after due deliberative and consultative process that we launched the Executive MA in Public Policy in Fall 2009. The program is multidisciplinary, integrated with the Centre’s research focus, and is designed to impart professional skills with theoretical rigor, employing and enhancing practitioners’ rich experience and knowledge base.  In 2011 the CPPG launched its Monographs series and published two studies titled “Pakistan, Afghanistan and US Relations: Implications and Future Directions” and “Industrial Policy in Punjab: A Case Study of Sundar Industrial Estate”.
If you are someone who wants to understand why governance must improve and policies need change, join the program with the spirit that you can contribute towards redesigning the policies in our country.
