Vacancy at Social Watch India

The National Social Watch Coalition is an attempt at a broad based network of civil society organisations, citizens and communities to build a process of monitoring governance towards professed goals of social development, particularly with respect to the marginalised sections of our country. As an attempt to check rhetoric against the real, it tries to monitor the institutions of governance and their commitment towards citizens and principles of democracy.

The Social Watch process is the collective response of a number of development organisations, social action groups, and citizens to ensure that there is a critical engagement with the process of governance. This is a part of the initiative to make democracy meaningful and participatory.
