Policy Research & Advocacy

CMCA seeks to transform the young into concerned, thinking and active citizens. This systematic change is accomplished by directly engaging with young people through citizenship programs in schools and colleges and also by advocating for change at a policy level. The Policy research and Advocacy department of CMCA is dedicated to engaging with Government, Civil Society Organisations, and Academia to bring about change in the way Civics is taught in India’s Schools and Colleges and also to transform education as a whole, one that it is inclined towards Democratic Citizenship
