Center for Civil Society’s Researching Reality Summer Internship 2014; Apply by April 27

[first published on Jan 30]


Center for Civil Society’s Researching Reality summer internship is a fulltime internship that spans a course of six weeks between June and July.

The summer internship is open to up to 25 interns under the guidance of an internship coordinator, to work on individual research projects and participate in a series of workshops on research, public policy, and liberal philosophy.

It provides interns with valuable training in areas of research, analysis, writing, and above all critical thinking. Interns study various agencies, boards, corporations, departments, schemes and programs of the state governments and Municipal Corporations; evaluating existing systems to recommend sustainable and long-term policy improvements in the functioning of government structures.

The program nurtures collective learning and individual discovery, culminating in working papers on thematic issues, each providing policy recommendations for efficient and accountable government functioning. Some of these papers and articles go on to be published in academic journals and leading newspapers.

CCS does not require internship papers to be in line with any political philosophy, we require research papers to be scientific in spirit and content.

The program is also an opportunity to interact with fellow interns, young thinkers from diverse fields representing various colleges within and outside India.

Interns will be expected to commit full-time during weekdays during the course of the internship and whatever time is needed to complete their field visits and other assignments.
