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 is also in the process of building a knowledge dissemination platform for creating a nuanced but powerful global discourse on child rights.
