The Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) is one of India’s leading institutes for research in the social sciences and humanities. Since its inception in 1963, the Centre has been known for its critical outlook on received models of development and progress; it is animated by a vision of equality and democratic transformation.
In contrast to the development economics profile of most social science research institutions, the Centre is singular in its multi-disciplinary approach. Scholars of political studies and political philosophy, sociology, anthropology, psychology, history, and legal and media studies have populated the Centre over the years, giving it a live interdisciplinary context.
Although the Centre is widely respected for its independence from governments and multiple social pressures, it treasures its continuing presence in the public domain. In addition to academic writing, faculty members write newspaper columns and blogs, participate in television and radio debates, and appear in public forums around the country.
