Centre for South Indian Studies (CSIS) is a public charitable trust established in Delhi, engaged in academic study, research and analysis of economic, social, historical and political developments, both past and contemporary. CSIS commissions scientific research on various subjects and topics pertaining to South India, directly by its researchers and funds studies of interests that conform to its aims and objectives. It also motivates academicians and students to take up new research initiatives to rework on conventional narratives on South India to enable understanding these topics scientifically. Apart from organising research programmes, CSIS also brings out publications periodically and carries out social awareness programmes. CSIS regularly organises lectures, debates, panel discussions and talks on various subjects related to South India. We also organise seminars and workshops, as part of our academic activity.
