The Centre for Policy Research (CPR) has been one of India’s leading public policy think tanks since 1973. CPR is a non-profit, non-partisan, independent institution dedicated to conducting research that contributes to high quality scholarship, better policies, and a more robust public discourse about the issues that impact life in India.
CPR brings together India’s best thinkers and policy practitioners who are at the forefront of both research and engagement in the policy space, drawing from various disciplines and professional backgrounds. CPR conducts advanced and in-depth research on a wide range of policy-relevant issues, with a focus on India’s 21st-century challenges. Through its research and policymaking engagements, CPR works closely with policymakers in its aim to place India firmly on the path of building a twenty-first century policy ecosystem.
The institution nurtures and supports scholarly excellence. However, the institution does not take a collective position on issues. CPR’s scholars have complete autonomy to express their individual views.
CPR is committed to:
CPR has been home to some of the brightest minds in India. Leading policymakers, scholars, bureaucrats and thought leaders have been associated with the Centre in various capacities.
CPR’s partners and donors include reputed international and national organisations ranging from government institutions, non-profits, educational institutions and civil society groups.
