About the Research and Knowledge Management Department

We at CSR believe that the pursuit of knowledge should be a socially relevant activity. We’re dedicated to promoting the interdependence of research, action and sustainable development. As the role of social institutions in processes of social change widens and deepens, it becomes even more vital to relate theory to practice by combining empirical research with action-oriented programs. Research mustn’t be limited to seminar rooms, academic journals and largely uncirculated official documents. Instead, research in the social sciences can be made meaningful to all sectors of society by linking it with programs of sustainable and positive social change.

During our earlier years, we concentrated research on localised problems among the underprivileged: Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, women and the urban poor. More recently, the scope of our research has widened to include national and regional (South Asia) issues. Our research and enquiries address topics of and related to gender, health, violence against women, environment, education, governance, political participation, labour, industry and trade. As much as our research work has been appreciated for its scientific rigor, we are also proud of the policy-level recommendations and action-oriented insights that emerge from our findings. CSR’s monographs, books and reports have been well received by social activists, universities and policy-making bodies alike.
