The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy (‘Vidhi’) is an independent think-tank doing legal research to make better laws and improve governance for the public good – and right now it is the Indian Government’s “go to” advisor on policy areas, research, drafting and other legal matters.
Vidhi is a combination of great brains but the one to watch is Arghya Sengupta, Founder and Research Director at Vidhi, Rhodes Scholar who spent time at Oxford and prior to founding Vidhi, he was at Oxford as a Lecturer in Administrative Law at Pembroke College.
His special areas include regulation of the digital economy – the hot topic of the day.
Vidhi is a strongly independent think tank.
But, just to give you some idea of their amazing achievements and output – Vidhi has produced 2 books, 87 blogs, 8 briefing books, 43 conferences, 1 film, gained 32 international partnerships, 30 journal articles, 411 Op-Ed pieces and 112 reports.
Vidhi has assisted the government in 29 draft statutes and in 35 rules and regulations drafts.
Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy is one to watch.
