The Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances in the Union Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Ministry has chosen Jawaharlal Nehru University to conduct a research on implementation of the best practices in governance in India.
The Centre for the Study of Law and Governance in partnership with the University Science and Instrumentation Centre for Technical Assistance and the Centre for South Central, Southeast Asian and Southwest Pacific Studies at the School of International Studies will work on a two-year project titled “Capacity Building for Poverty Eradication”. The project Capacity Building for Poverty Eradication aims at feeding efforts on inclusive governance by bridging the gap between academic research and its implementation, between theorists and practitioners to overcome the lacunae in administrative reforms. The project will dissect the anatomy of poverty eradication projects in India. Every finding of the research undertaken here will be disseminated to generate a dialogue among academic institutions, practitioners, non-government organisations and stakeholders across the world. It is also a strategy to strengthen the research on implementation theory which has been one of the most obstinate missing link in governance and to promote action-based research in transforming the lives of ordinary citizens. The project will combine academic research and e-governance
There will be two aspects of the project. The first dealing with pure academic research where the team members will travel across the country to find out the practices sustainable for the poor. The second is the technological aspect where the findings of the research would be made available to everyone by putting them up on the Governance Knowledge Centre Portal that was started two years ago. The project will help to make the portal
