Vidhi is pleased to share its impact report for 2020-21 – The Shifting Paradigm.

We have all been through an extraordinarily challenging and unpredictable year, which fundamentally shifted the paradigm on many fronts. Original research at Vidhi in the last year has focused on understanding the contours of these seismic shifts. For instance, we worked with our partners and the E-Committee of the Supreme Court to draft a set of rules that will allow live streaming of judicial proceedings – a huge step for transparency.

Overall, we produced over 35 reports, assisted the government in drafting 23 rules and regulations, released our annual briefing book on 25 legal reforms required for a post-Covid India, wrote 24 journal articles, nearly 130 opeds, and released 28 podcasts and 5 short films on the implementation of landmark environmental judgements.

The pandemic did not spare Vidhi as most of our colleagues faced the brunt of the second wave, in particular. To ensure adequate support, we took a two-week long break in May to facilitate the recovery process, and have provided organisation-wide free mental health service to help in coping with the uncertainty, worry and fear that COVID-19 has caused at large. For us, impact begins at home. 

This report is a snapshot of our commitment to shaping a better future in these unprecedented times, and a testament to your support, friendship, and good wishes.
