Public Affairs

Public affairs is a comparatively unregulated area in the context of Indian corporate ecosystem. Even the definition of Public Affairs varies from one Public Affairs practitioner to another. By Public Affairs practitioners, we mean influential players such as the big four consulting firms, law firms, specialist public affairs firms and PR firms specialising in public affairs services.

The lack of a structured regulatory framework that sets specific guidelines for the conduct of public affairs adds to the complexity of the decision making process. This has led to a host of novel situations in recent years involving public affairs/government relations practitioners, and a general air of intrigue around this elusive discipline.
