The team at TQH works on a diverse range of projects. We work across sectors such as tech policy, social policy and urban affairs. We have led policy research and advocacy work for Catalyst, an initiative seeded by the Government of India and USAID to increase the adoption of digital payments in India. We have also worked closely with the Government of Haryana for employment and skilling, supported NITI Aayog and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation (MSDF) with building momentum for reforms in education and undertaken projects for UN agencies.
We currently anchor all advocacy initiatives for the Property Rights Research Consortium and are working to build support for policies that empower women with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), IWWAGE, and Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME). We are also working with the Lancet Commission on issues around the political economy of healthcare, and with Dasra on sanitation and urban planning. In tech policy, we work extensively on issues of data protection and privacy, intermediary liability, development of digital public infrastructure as well as regulation of new business models in fintech and telecom. We lead policy assignments for tech majors and work with industry bodies such as NASSCOM and Alliance of Digital India Foundation (ADIF).
In addition to the above, we work to strengthen participatory governance and research-based civic engagement by assisting offices of Members of Parliament, Members of State Legislatures and government ministries with research and advocacy on legislative and policy issues through our sister concern and learning arm YLAC – Young Leaders for Active Citizenship.
