Centre for Equity Studies

CES was founded in August 2000 as an independent organisation engaged in research and advocacy on a range of social and economic justice issues in India. We examine the nature and causes of social injustice and inequity that befall the poorest sections of India to find ways to move towards a more equitable, humane and peaceful society.

CES therefore seeks to influence and shape public policy and law in favour of the most disadvantaged communities in this country through a range of work, which includes:

  • law and social policy design and advocacy
  • research into the interface of disadvantaged people with government, law, policy and programmes
  • grassroots engagement to help develop alternatives to existing policy, programmes and law
