Engage. Explore. Empower.

Our research aims to ultimately empower people—our own researchers, educators and students as well as stakeholders in the India subcontinent—so that they engender tangible changes to their work life, media representations and social standing. We consider change in the broadest possible way, from innovative media practices and management principles to enhancing public awareness of pressing issues or marginalised peoples.
