India Exclusion Report is a collaborative effort involving institutions and individuals working with a shared notion of social and economic equity, justice and rights. The report seeks to inform public opinion around exclusion and the role of the state; and to influence policy making towards creating a more inclusive, equitable and just society. It is also meant to bring to the fore particular vulnerabilities faced by marginalised communities and groups, their lives and struggles. It is the flagship annual publication anchored by the Centre for Equity Studies, edited every year by Harsh Mander, the Director. The endeavour seeks to support public action for greater inclusion of and justice for the oppressed and the marginalised peoples of India.
