Center of Policy Research & Governance - India
A leading public policy think tank of the modern era
CPRG India studies economic issues but its approach is different as it believes more in the grounded theory. We collect data from the field and then compare it with the existing policies of the government.
CPRG India studies the implications of social policies of the government. How much these policies are effective and how can it be improved with the right feedback of people.
For CPRG India, Development is not a constant term, for us, it is a relative term which we see from different perspectives, not just from Delhi. The development of villages is needed but it should be done according to their own needs and not by the desires of others.
For us, Governance is not a bureaucratic term, it is a structure which comes into existence for the people. So, any system should deal with people and it should be run for the people. People should not run for the running system. Governance should be able to cater to the needs of the people and that's why it is needed to get feedback from the people. CPRG India is trying to make governance system more people-centric.
To improve lives of the common citizen by creating spaces and well-informed voices in the continuous and contemporary discourse of public welfare. The Centre with its independent thinking envisions creating a society where the individuals and the community have the knowledge and means for acquiring the desired goals for their all-round development.
Currently, we are working several projects. One of our project involves collection of samples of voices of people from marginalized section of the society. In this project, we are just trying to know whether the experiences of the marginalized section are monotonous or it consists some diversity.
We are the group of some young and experienced people who want to engage with field from people’s perspective. Our focus is field, we want intervene in policy issue with field data.
Our philosophy is to improve the life of downtrodden sections of the society.
To spread the power of the last men in our society.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
Individual commitment to a group effort--that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
