The Observer Research Foundation (ORF) focuses on developing research and policy initiatives/recommendations through evidenced-based analysis of economic and security issues facing India. This think-tank aims to bring together experts from various disciplines to look at national problems in a comprehensive manner that would cut across political, ideological and regional divides. The ORF has four major Institutes to consolidate and shape its multifarious activities and programs, and they are:

The ORF has worked extensively with local, regional, national and international partners to develop research, analysis and publications on a variety of issues and subjects. The website contains further details on the Institutes, analysis, research, reports, publications, partnerships, and news.
