Centre for Democratic Processes and Institutions (CDPI)



The Centre represents a comprehensive and interdisciplinary initiative to study political institutions and processes. The Centre is wedded to the task of studying the institutional context of politics as well as the process of mobilization of different sections of society into organized politics.

Social movements is an important theme on the agenda. The study of elections will also be undertaken to highlight the elements of critical campaign strategies, recruitment of support, intra and inter-party cleavages as well as inter-party alignments. It seeks to place special emphasis on the study of institutions for democratic decentralization and the linkages among the political institutions at federal, intermediate and local levels. While promoting research on the above themes in the context of Uttar Pradesh, comparative endeavor on the context, characteristics and results of political processes is also encouraged.
