The future of India’s civil society organisations

  • Published
    19th Apr, 2023


Given that advocacy is e?ectively dead, the ability of civil society to shape policy and public discourse has shrunk drastically.

Civil Societies in India

  • Voluntary association outside state control- Civil society is all forms of voluntary associations and social interactions not controlled by the state.
  • Policy Advocacy- CSOs are engaged in policy dialogues with the government in areas of poverty alleviation and empowerment of the disadvantaged sections.
  • Protection Role- CSOs enable legal services and protect the citizens against repressive attitudes.

Issues faced by them

  • First, because of the ?nancial and structural constraints imposed on them, CSOs/movements are bleeding conscientious youngsters, who naturally need some ?nancial sustenance.
  • Second, without sustained support, CSOs cannot positively mould public discourse or make a tangible impact on the nation at large.
  • Third, with governments consciously avoiding CSOs/movements, their ability to shape policy is diminished (which adversely impacts organisational morale).
