State Capacity and Issues of Nano and Micro Entrepreneurs – IPPN Annual Conference

Partner: Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA), India Public Policy Network (IPPN)

State Capacity: What Is It and Why Is It Needed? Reflecting on the recent past, two simultaneous forces are in play pertaining to the capacities of governments – on the one hand, governments are expected to respond swiftly and effectively to risks and uncertainties; and on the other hand, there is a general increase in the expectations that citizens have from their governments in terms of breadth and depth of capacities.

Governments are expected to handle issues related to the governance of emerging technologies just as capably as issues related to social welfare. These dynamics require a systematic understanding of state capacity both at the conceptual and practical levels. Sharon Buteau, Executive Director, LEAD at Krea University presented the paper “Formalisation of Nano Enterprises” and shared insights on the topic at the IPPN Annual Conference, 2022.

Convened by the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) & India Public Policy Network (IPPN) and supported by JSW School of Public Policy at IIM A, the IPPN Annual Conference aims to bring together scholars and practitioners not only from India but also from across the world through high-quality academic research and policy case studies.
