Applications are open for the program ‘El Buen Político’; full scholarship for participating women

Indian School of Democracy (ISD) opens applications for the second iteration of The Good Politician, a 9-month experiential political leadership journey with 30 young political leaders who aim to transform India’s public leadership.

The idea is to develop political skills, a community of future politicians, and the moral courage and imagination to lead political change across India.

Prominent political leaders have cited this program as one of the most inspiring initiatives in the country to define principled politics in recent times, the organizers said.

The final deadline to apply for the program is December 25, 2022.

“This year we will run the second iteration of this program that begins in March 2023 and ends in December 2023. It is a unique executive program that allows participants to stay in their current roles and be a part of the program. The 9 months are divided into 3 quarters consisting of 2 weeks of ‘residentials’ across the country, followed by 12-16 weeks of ‘field time’ applying their learning and practice in their own districts. It contains weekly online sessions with field experts or political leaders to improve our political knowledge, skills and gain clarity from our political insides. In the latest iteration, we invited high-level politicians like Asauddin Owaisi, Ram Madhav, Rohit Pawar, Atishi, Meenakshi Natarajan, and V Sivadasan, among others, along with field experts like Amitabh Behar, Esha Alagh, TR Raghunandan, among others.” says the Indian statement.

In the last 4 years, Indian School of Democracy has worked with more than 150 young political leaders from more than 24 states. In each of their shows, the focus is on having participants from different political parties and marginalized communities, they said.

“Among our alumni there are sarpanches, councilors and party spokespersons. It is a vibrant community of young politicians working for a principled policy”, added the press release.
