Indian Institute of Democratic Leadership

IIDL ( Indian Institute of Democratic Leadership)

Democracy in particular, and politics in general are the two significant areas of public life where capacity building mechanisms are not just absent but perhaps, not very seriously thought of. Most officials and employees almost mandatorily undergo some training, but those from whom the officials are supposed to take orders, are believed to be born knowledgeable and skilled to govern. It is also taken for granted that they are working for a cause too. This presupposition is not only grossly wrong but also is a potential threat to effective implementation of the concepts like welfare state and development administration.
