"I would like to add my congratulations to the editorial team for launching this important addition to the public policy dialogues around the world. As evident in the inaugural issue, the forum provides a space for the voices from around the world to participate in the conversations about the changing nature of public policy.

"In a world clogged with publications, there has been a space for a world class journal with respect for heterodox approaches to the complex and scaled eco-system of both formal and informal institutional interests in public policy and its practices. JJPP fills that space with its stimulating and exemplary first issue. Congratulations!"

Professor Barbara Harriss-White
Emeritus Professor of Development Studies and Director, South Asia Research Cluster, Wolfson College, University of Oxford, UK.

"It is clear from this first issue that this journal is an exciting venture which will cover the major questions at the frontiers of research on public policies with papers by internationally renowned scholars adopting a variety of alternative perspectives."

Professor Frances Stewart
Director of Centre for Research on Inequality, Human Security and Ethnicity (CRISE), Department for International Development, Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford, UK

"Just as public policy schools in the global south are to be welcomed, so are journals of public policy. The Jindal Journal of Public Policy promises to become an important such new journal. In its very first issue it has attracted important scholars to contribute substantial essays. It is my hope that the journal will continue to attract high quality, interdisciplinary essays that address pressing problems of public policy."

Professor Atul Kohli
David Bruce Professor of International Affairs & Chief Editor, World Politics, Princeton University

"This inaugural issue augurs well for the future of the JJPP: high calibre authors, important questions, lucid analysis. A welcome addition to the scholarly conversation."

Professor Robert Jenkins
