Labour, Livelihoods and Employment

Economic growth in India has failed to generate secure, regular, and decent incomes for the vast majority of the workforce. There is an urgent need for fresh thinking that does not bind itself to any ideological pre-commitment except the right of every Indian to lead a secure and dignified life in a just and sustainable way.

The Centre for Sustainable Employment at Azim Premji University aims to foster fresh and creative thinking on this urgent and complex issue. To this end, we invite research proposals in the broad area of labour, livelihoods, and employment including but not limited to:

  1. Macroeconomics of structural change and employment generation
  2. Skills and skill development
  3. Sustainable industrialization and green growth
  4. Labour laws, informality and contract labour
  5. Impact of COVID-19 and the associated measures on labour, livelihoods, and employment

Research Funding budget: INR 5-20 lakhs
Duration of project: 1-3 years

The last date for submissions is Oct 31, 2020.
