What is XKDR Forum?
We are a non-profit research organization located in Bombay, India. 'XKDR' stands for 'Cross Disciplinary Knowledge Data Research'. We synthesise knowledge and capabilities from diverse specialised fields in order to diagnose and solve the great problems of the age.
Are you a university, a research institution, a think tank, or a consulting organisation?
We are not a university in that we do not grant degrees but we do engage in a variety of mechanisms through which we diffuse knowledge into society. We are a research institution, in that we create new knowledge, write papers and books, and disseminate these. We engage in public debates, but not in a partisan or ideological manner, so the phrase 'think tank' makes us a bit uncomfortable. We are not a consulting organisation in the conventional sense of the term, but we do engage with many partners on practical solutions to felt needs.
In what field do you produce research papers: Economics or Statistics or Law?
We do all of these, but we define ourselves by none of these. We are interested in the grand questions of the world. We seek to achieve knowledge and expertise in order to be useful, without narrow definitions of a discipline.
