Who we are

Liberation Technology, a.k.a LibTech India is a team of engineers, social workers, and social scientists who, inspired by the Right to Information movement and the idea of social audits, focus on various aspects of improving transparency, accountability, and democratic engagement in rural public services delivery.

LibTech is a centre at Collaborative Research and Dissemination (CORD), New Delhi.


What we do

Using a rights-based framework, we have worked on different policies, trying to make them transparent and disseminating data about them to those who can use the information to make the state accountable to them. Our focus has been NREGA and PM-KISAN, but we have also worked on PDS, RTI, and entitlements like pensions and maternity entitlements. We work closely in small geographies to understand processes in public service delivery, and we draw upon field insights for research and policy advocacy work.
