Ankitha Cheerakathil

I am currently leading the Institute’s strategy, partnership development and projects in India. I fulfil an entrepreneurial role as Executive Director of the Institute in India, modifying the strategies and vision of the Prague office to local contexts and realities. A published author, I am an alumna of St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University and the Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po. I am also a visiting faculty and research team member of the innovative new School of Collective Intelligence at Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique, Morocco. I have interest in social innovations for improved governance and active citizenship. In my free time, I plan treks in the Himalayas and read.
