Operational Structure

CSC is currently operating with its four organizational wings, namely, think-tank initiative, projects and programs, knowledge production, and movement building.

Think-tank Initiative : CSC envisions a platform to promote evidence-based policy making and advocacy. With this vision, CSC is carrying out research related to its working themes for generating evidences that may support to policymaking and advocacy initiatives in Nepal. Besides conducting research, think-tank initiative is envisioned for establishing CSC as a watchdog to provide analysis of the socio-political context, and providing policy feedbacks and inputs to politicians, policymakers, donors, and civil society organizations.

Projects and Programs : This wing is mainly responsible for designing and implementing projects and programs within its working themes and in partnership with donors, civil society organizations, universities, and private sector.

Knowledge Management and Production : Considering the lack of strong knowledge management and production initiatives in the CSC’s working themes, we have focused our work on conducting research, generating evidences for policy-making and advocacy and eventually publishing books, reports, policy briefs, and infographics. In addition, CSC also aims to provide analysis of the context through newspaper articles, blogs, and online knowledge management and information portal. It is believed that CSC’s work in the long run will be beneficial for educational and policy making purpose to the concerned stakeholders.

Movement Building : CSC strongly believes in continuous coordination and cooperation among different stakeholders for achieving sustainable change. With this view, movement building wing at CSC establishes connections and partnerships with local, national, regional and global social change movements and also takes proactive efforts to create and strengthen social change movements in the areas of CSC’s strategic priorities.
