At Fields of View, we design games and simulations to help make better public policy. We are a not-for-profit research group based in Bangalore. We are an interdisciplinary group with people whose backgrounds range from technology, art, social sciences, law, and policy.
As our goal is to create bridges between Government, Academia, and Civil Society, we work with all three groups:
Government - Our partners in government include Department of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India; Institute of Plasma Research, Government of India; Tamil Nadu State Land Use Board, Government of Tamil Nadu.
Civil Society Groups - The civil society organizations we have collaborated with include Gender at Work, who works to promote gender equality in organizations; Sahjeevan, who works to empower disadvantaged communities in the Kutch region in Gujarat, India; Alternative Law Forum, whose focus is on integrating alternative lawyering with critical research; UNESCO-MGIEP, which specialises in research, knowledge sharing and policy formulation in the area of education for peace, sustainability and global citizenship; and UNDP Sri Lanka.
