WHO WE ARE
Headquartered in New Delhi, India, SPRF is a youth-centric policy think tank focused on social and political research, guided by our group of trustees that includes Padma Shri Awardees (Shri Ram Bahadur Rai, Shri Pushpesh Kumar Pant, Shri Jawahar Lal Kaul). Through our research, outreach, and events, our organisation seeks to deliberate and discuss the idea of an India where public policy is strengthened by fact, and not steered by opinion.
Our guiding vision is to create and curate new narratives in the democratic space, providing evidence-based, digital first solutions. Anchored in the ideas that emerged post-independence by the greatest minds of the time, we work to ensure that public policy understanding resonates with the largest demographic in the country - the youth.
We aim to help steer discourse in a way that reflects the changing times.

We firmly believe in being progressive, adaptive, and forward-thinking yet remain rooted in the founding philosophies of India. Our belief in helping young people make meaningful contributions to India's growth story through policy analysis and public discourse shall set future generations on course for a bigger, brighter tomorrow.

विकासशील, अनुकूलनशील और प्रगतिशील सोच में परंतु बुनियादी भारतीय दर्शन में हमारी जड़ें हैं। हमारी सोच युवाओं की मदद कर नीति विश्लेषण और जन विचार विमर्श द्वारा भारत की विकास कथा में अर्थपूर्ण योगदान करवाना है जो आने वाली पीढ़ी के लिए एक आशा से भरा, बेहतर कल लाएगी।
