Upholding the Values of the Indian Constitution

Project Constitutionalism is a non-partisan organization founded in 2019 that works to increase constitutional awareness, protect constitutional rights and strengthen constitutional governance.


India was envisioned as a country in which an exceptionally diverse citizenry would share a common way of life founded on the values of justice, equality, liberty and fraternity. This shared project came to be embodied in a living document called the Constitution of India. The Constitution created a government in which power was separated between three branches, defined what it meant to be a citizen and secured our fundamental rights.

Project Constitutionalism was founded to further the realization of the Indian Constitution, contribute to its growth and defend its supremacy. We believe in equality, the rule of law, non-violence and the separation of religion and state. We are non-partisan and believe that governmental means and ends must be constitutional.


Project Constitutionalism aims to increase constitutional awareness, protect constitutional rights and strengthen constitutional governance. 


Increase Constitutional Awareness

Through engagement, we seek to make all Indian citizens aware of the powers and protections of the Constitution and its role in society and politics.


Protect Constitutional

Through education, advocacy and litigation, we aim to safeguard the constitutional rights of all people in India.


Strengthen Constitutional Governance

Through high-quality research and advocacy, we work to promote constitutional governance and secure the strength of our constitutional institutions.
