We work to empower workers and communities and to ensure that businesses comply with human rights, labour rights and environmental standards. With this objective, we educate workers, study effects of corporate conduct, dialogue with various stakeholders and advocate for policy change.

Cividep India was formed in the year 2000. It attempts to educate workers about their rights, and campaigns for corporate accountability with other like-minded organisations and individuals.

Our research is in the electronics, garment, leather, plantation, mining and banking sectors. Our workers’ rights initiatives have been in the garment, electronics, manufacturing and plantation sectors.

Cividep works to ensure that human rights abuses, environmental damage, corrupt practices and violation of workers’ rights by companies are addressed.
