About CSBC

Ashoka University

Founded by and a part of Ashoka University

Since our inception, we have been dedicated to expanding and sharing knowledge and underscoring behavioural science’s role in building public policies that directly impact society.

Supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

We are profoundly global with a clear purpose: to build an institution that betters the world by engineering impactful behaviour change interventions for marginalised populations.

What is Behavioural Science?

Our behaviour and decision-making processes are governed by a host of factors. The different scientific disciplines that attempt to explain these comprise behavioural science.
