Governance & Public Policy Initiative

The Governance and Public Policy Initiative (GPPI) seeks to foster a strategic community that brings together Indian law makers, scholars, bureaucrats, and civil society leaders to discuss pressing issues of public policy. It works in partnership with national and international think tanks and partner institutions to convene roundtables, seminars, and conferences on a range of issues including democratic processes, national security, urban governance and development, jurisprudence, health, education, gender, and cyber security.

Accountability Initiative

Who We Are

We are a research group which works on strengthening transparency and accountability in governance which is responsive to citizen need. We do this through evidence-based research on state capabilities and factors affecting efficient public services delivery in India. We provide the evidence to policymakers, development practitioners, academics, the media and work on increasing citizen engagement in policy making and implementation.

We are a part of the Centre for Policy Research, one of India’s leading public policy think tanks.


Our vision is to enable Responsive Governance. We believe this can be achieved if institutions are designed in a transparent and accountable manner and are responsive to citizen demands, and an informed and mobilised citizenry which can draw upon these platforms. Our mission is to increase both through research and dialogue.
