EduDoc 2018: Stories of Education

About us
About Centre for Civil Society
Centre for Civil Society advances social change through public policy. Our work in education, livelihood, and policy training promotes choice and accountability across the private and public sectors. To translate policy into practice, we engage with policy and opinion leaders through research, pilot projects and advocacy. Each individual leads a life of choice in personal, economic and political spheres and every institution is accountable.

CCS’s centre for Law, Liberty and Livelihood is founded on the principle that the quality of life is intrinsically related to the pursuit of livelihood. Choice and pursuit of livelihood is more valuable for those at the bottom rung of the economic ladder-nobody appreciates free enterprise more than the poor hawker. This entails the removal of various licences and laws, rules and regulations under which citizens live. The rich can always find a way around government controls, the poor have no way out. The free market, not government is best suited to offer opportunities for pursuit of livelihood. Therefore the Centre develops public policy measures to clear the path for free enterprise and through research, advocacy and outreach activities shift the terms of public debate in favor of deregulation of exit and entry barriers for pursuit of a honest livelihood.
