The Division of Public Policy (PPOL) and the Institute for Public Policy (IPP) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology are hosting the Inter-University Public Policy Case Competition 2021. It provides a hands-on opportunity for students to analyze and resolve real-life public policy problems through case studies. The Competition is co-organized by the School of Humanities and Social Science and the Division of Social Science of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
All cases for the competition are developed by the Institute for Public Policy and the Division of Public Policy at HKUST. Each case features the background of one pressing public policy challenge that real-life policy makers need to address. In the Competition, participants will analyze the assigned case studies, prepare responses to the corresponding tasks, deliver pitches/presentations, and answer questions.
Full-time sub-degree, undergraduate and postgraduate (taught and research) students from all higher education institutions in Hong Kong are eligible for participation. Eligible students may form a team of 3 to 4 members. Members of the same team must be from the same institution. Each team may consist of members from the same discipline/education level or a variety of disciplines/education levels. Winning team will be awarded up to HKD 8,000 in cash prizes.
