The Centre for Civil Society, a highly regarded public policy think tank based in New Delhi, advances social change through market liberal policy reforms. Our work in education, livelihood, and policy training promotes choice and accountability across private and public sectors. To translate policy into practice, we engage with policy and opinion leaders through research, pilot projects and advocacy.
Furthering over two decades of CCS’ commitment to advance social change through public policy, the Centre for Reimagining Innovation and Science Policy [CRISP] has been conceptualised as a non-profit institution of excellence dedicated to advancing policy solutions that foster scientific enquiry and research, and facilitate the creation and dissemination of new scientific knowledge.
