The ​‘Stories of Change: Case Study Challenge’ seeks to facilitate and recognise documentation of good practices of social change. However, unlike the usual ​‘good practices’ literature, the University’s focus is on reflections and learning, including capturing the limitations of such practices in a case study format focusing on existing interventions of NGOs, social movements, government programmes, and other development organisations including CSR foundations who are directly implementing the interventions. 

Each Volume contains 10 case studies on Development Action

2019-2020 – Volume 1

2020-2021 – Volume 2

2021-2022 – Volume 3
