The Triple Threat to Civil Society in India

COVID-19, Corporatization, and Closing Space


This working paper, by Ingrid Srinath, the Director of the Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy at Ashoka University, examines the origins and growing strength of forces ranged against civil society in India, and points toward the actions necessary to confront them – including reforming regulatory frameworks, anachronistic laws, and improving participatory governance.

This paper is part of the Working Paper series, which is made up of contributions from academic staff in International Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
