About IPAN

The Uniqueness of IPAN as a Think Tank

We take pride in the fact that IPAN is Asia’s first youth-led public policy think tank.

The uniqueness of IPAN lies in the way it brings together experienced academicians, bureaucrats, government officials, corporate persons, diplomats, NGOs and lawyers along with some ambitious youth leaders across the world. As a think tank, IPAN goes a step ahead and relies majorly upon youth led research and analysis, mentored by our senior fellows. Youth representation under an able mentorship brings in a youth perspective in the research outcomes which is one of the main objectives of our policy recommendations.

Such an active and reliable youth involvement in our research advocacy is unprecedented, and makes us unique.Our work models - “Advocacy followed by Activism” and “Protest by Participation” rely on this very aspect of our youth centric human resource utilisation.
