Dr. A. K. Tharien Chair for Reconciliation.
Summer Academy of Leadership & Governance
At Paripurna Centre, ICSA, Manapakkam,Chennai
May 2-6, 2017
Every Citizen has a role in Nation Building and is expected to actively participate in the affairs of the country. Development in a nation is proportional to the quality of the awareness of its citizens. There is less corruption in a country where people are aware of their rights. In order to be a learned citizen of India, basic knowledge of the Constitution is important. Because, constitution lays down the framework defining fundamental political principles, establishes the structure, procedures, powers and duties of government institutions and sets out fundamental rights to the citizens and directive principles to the government. It is one of the best written constitutions of any sovereign country in the world. The idea of constitutionalism suggests ways and means to work out a governmental form, which exercises power and ensures, at the same time, individual freedom and liberty. Moreover, these government institutions are essential for the smooth functioning of the society. Teaching about constitution does not merely mean giving information and knowledge alone but could sensitize a person, awaken his/her conscience and develop an attitude of behaving decently in a social set up.
Knowledge of the rights and responsibilities of being a citizen is important. It is helpful in following the law and to lead a responsible nation building. Every person has a role to play and not left with a few politicians alone to decide the fate of the nation.
Getting government services without paying bribes happens only in a healthy society. Every person should be able to do things by themselves. Knowledge of the important skills like getting basic services done without going for third party or an agent is important.
A special emphasis is also given to deal with issues on Developing Leadership and Personal Management.
The objective of this academy organized at the ICSA- Paripurna Centre at Chennai by its Dr. A.K. Tharien Chair is to study the Constitution and skills required for selected services. There will be both theoretical and Practical sessions such as understanding Constitution, personal management & leadership, how to file RTI, / How to file PIL, and knowledge of CrRPC.
We request you to send two persons (preferably one should be a woman) from your institution. We will be happy to meet the to and fro travel expenses by train (sleeper class only) besides their boarding and lodging at the centre. We encourage communications through email.
