Who We Are

Brookings India Annual Report 2016-17Established in 2013, the Brookings Institution India Center is a non-profit public policy organisation based in New Delhi, India. Our work is centered on the motto, “Quality, Independence, Impact”.

As the Indian Government develops policy priorities, methods and institutions to address critical issues concerning India, Brookings India conducts in-depth, policy-relevant research that bring new solutions to the problems facing India.

Brookings India scholars work on several domains including Development and Governance, Foreign Policy, Energy and Sustainability and Digital Economy. They work closely with Government, Industry and other stakeholders to enhance the impact of their research.

Brookings India is an affiliate of the Washington, D.C.-based Brookings Institution, the oldest independent think tank in the world. The Brookings Institution has been consistently ranked as the Number One think tank in the world for nine consecutive years.

The India Center gains phenomenally from the Brookings Institution’s unique brand of providing high quality research, an extensive network with policymakers and media across the world, an exceptional convening power, and a global reach.

Brookings India builds on a strong foundation of experience and expertise with policymaking and an active programme of policy-shaping activities on India. In developing a comprehensive programme of policy research and engagement on relevant issues, our scholars bring analytical rigour and multi-disciplinary depth.

Our commitment to institutional independence is rooted in the individual independence of our scholars. Brookings India does not take positions on issues.
