Can policymaking be made more relevant to the lives of people affected by it? Can policymaking be more responsive to the constantly changing social-economic-environmental context? Can we reduce the time taken for a policy to go from the drawing board to implementation? The answer to all these questions is yes, provided we have the right set of tools. Our goal thus at Fields of View is to undertake research at the intersection of technology, social sciences, and art to design these tools for policymakers and people. We are a not-for-profit group based in Bangalore.

Our work involves three inter-related threads:

Policy Lab
In the Policy Lab, we undertake research at the intersection of technology, social sciences, and arts. We work in the areas of urban poverty, energy, transportation, disaster management, and water. Our research involves creating and designing new methods and tools in the areas of simulations and games.

School of Policy
Training programmes and workshops for government agencies and civil society organisations across South Asia on these new tools and methods.

Making policy accessible
Artifacts, which include graphic novels, games, and videos to make policy more accessible and actionable.

For the eight consecutive year, Fields of View has been featured in the ‘Global Go To Think Tank Index Report’ by the University of Pennsylvania that ranks public policy research organisations worldwide in the ‘Best New Idea or Paradigm developed by a Think Tank’ category and since 2017 we have been featured as one of the Top Think Tanks in "China, India, Japan, and the Republic of Korea.”
