The KSCF Global Policy Institute for Children is envisioned to be an Institute where all the stakeholders in child rights protection and promotion across the world including governments and non-government agencies, law enforcement agencies, students and professionals will congregate, deliberate, learn and innovate on all child-related issues. The Institute will realise its objectives through four vibrant and symbiotic centres of excellence – Centre for Policy and Research, Centre for Innovation and Incubation, Centre for Dialogue, Learning and Capacity Building and Centre for Academics. The Institute is expected to come up in near future in the state of Madhya Pradesh, near Bhopal.


The Research Division aims to generate knowledge as well address gaps in knowledge through evidence-based research for better protection and development of children. Through primary and secondary research studies on various issues related to children in India and around the globe, the Division creates knowledge and disseminates the same among the stakeholders leading to creation of a more child friendly society. This evidence-based knowledge ensures that policy and decision-making on issues relating to children are more informed and the overall response to the protection of children’s rights is strengthened in India. This is achieved by focusing on building/strengthening of enabling environments through:

  • Conducting research and analysis to address evidence needs for strengthening of the policy framework and practices for children, thus leading to positive and sustainable social change towards a child-friendly world.

  • Creation of a global data hub and knowledge sharing platform and of credible information/ data/sources.

  • Fostering partnerships and collaboration with academic and organisations for achievement of various objectives of the Division
