CUTS International, an NPO spanned internationally, is looking to hire for the job role of Senior Research Associate. Applications from Law students are also encouraged.
About the Organization
CUTS International is a non-profit organization committed to fulfilling the developmental aspirations of the poor. Also known as Consumer Unity & Trust Society, CUTS focuses on providing the needy with access to equal rights, amenities, education, food, and developmental opportunities.
Since its humble beginnings in 1983 as a local consumer-advocacy group of 75 activists situated in villages in India, CUTS has grown into an international champion of stakeholder empowerment. Going beyond traditional consumer organizations CUTS empowers citizens economically, politically, and socially to become involved in and influence economic governance from the local to the international level.
Dedicated to consumer concerns and India’s development policies at first, the thematic scope of CUTS’ activities expanded as new issues impacting consumer welfare emerged. For example, privatization efforts in developing countries and the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in the early 90s triggered CUTS’ engagement in these processes.
