JOIN US FOR THE 2nd ANNUAL ALUMNI RETREAT THIS FEBRUARY!
Having launched it's first student seminar on public policy in 1998 (Liberty and Society Seminar), CCS Academy has now completed 20 exciting years of engaging with the young minds on liberal approach to public policy.
To mark this two-decade long engagement, this day-long residential event will bring together alumni from the last 20 years—graduates of our policy workshops, training, and internships, who are currently students, or have entered the workforce as journalists, development sector professionals, corporate leaders, lawyers or academicians. Through this interaction, we're looking to strengthen our alumni network and the liberty movement in India.
Come and meet fellow alums working in different fields and engage with new ideas and conversations. Spark up the evening with a fun-filled musical gathering and know about our past achievements as well as our current projects in a holistic and engaging way. It won't take long for bonds to be formed when alums from our different programs and batches turn up on the same platform. United by our goal of forming a more liberal and open society, let us take this opportunity to explore ideas, debate issues, and share experiences!
Meet us over a networking dinner on 23 February and bid adieu with a brisk breakfast on 25 February!
Registration Charges: Rs. 2000

On 10 December, we hosted the Student Legislative Council from IIT Madras for a policy dialogue on the ideological traditions that predominate the political and policy landscape in India. Steered by Parth Shah, President, CCS, the dialogue further addressed the continuing challenges of effective policy-making, and the role of the individual, market and the state in enabling a freer and prosperous India.
Our ‘CCS on Campus’ initiative reaches out to leading colleges across the country to engage young learners in a critical dialogue on pressing socio-economic and political concerns. Through 2-3 hour ‘Campus Talks’ and ‘Policy Dialogues’, we encourage students to contest and debate learned presumptions and to explore the foundations of a free, prosperous and just society.
If you’d like to have CCS on your campus, or collaborate with us for a policy dialogue, write to us to us at email@example.com.
The launch of the Delhi Citizens' Handbook 2017 and a panel discussion on “Good Governance and Development: Strategic Performance and Reforms”.
29 August, 2017
NCUI, New Delhi | 4:00-6:00 PM
The Delhi Citizens' Handbook features research papers assessing the impact and relevance of policies that shape the lives of ordinary citizens in the national capital on eight core areas of urban governance: Administration, Education, Public Healthcare, Water and Sewage, Labour and Employment, Food and Civil Supplies, Public Transport and Women's Safety, and Housing Infrastructure. The Handbook has been prepared with the aim of functioning as a critical resource for productive public intervention and for ensuring an informed discussion on achieving effective and accountable governance.
The panel discussion will be centered on exploring the idea of governance and development, taking from the policy shortcomings addressed in every chapter of the Handbook. It will also address the critical questions of how governance and developmental reforms, for instance the recent e-governance initiative, can take place in a country like ours, and what the expected role of governmental and non-governmental institutions will be in this process.

Asst. Manager, Praja Foundation
Advisor to the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi
|Parth J Shah
President, Centre for Civil Society
