We believe in the concept of People Centred Advocacy that engages the spirit of democracy, serving as an advocacy method that is by the people, of the people, and for the people. By empowering people to advocate on their own behalf, NCAS engages People Centred Advocacy as an effective and sustainable approach to advocacy initiatives.
NCAS organised a round-table discussion on Right to Education: Role of Civil Society with various civil society friends from across the country on 17th December 2015 at New Delhi.

National Centre for Advocacy Studies (NCAS) emerged as a result of the collective vision and commitment by social activists who felt the need for a resource centre to facilitate advocacy for issues of public concern, specifically the rights of marginalised people. NCAS is a social change resource centre that aims at creating enabling conditions for people’s empowerment at the grass-roots and facilitating efforts for human rights, social justice, transparent, participatory and accountable governance.
The focus of NCAS' activities is in India and South Asia and it has emerged as a premier organisation for People Centred Advocacy throughout the Global South.NCAS works as a collective of activists, researchers, public interest lawyers, journalists and subject experts. It has pioneered the concept and praxis of “People-Centred Advocacy”.
