Watch the State: Documenting State Violence in India

At The Polis Project, Inc., we are concerned about the ways in which the Indian State perpetuates violence with impunity. In response to this concern, we set up Watch the State in December 2019 during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests in India. With the work we do at Watch the State, The Polis Project aims to hold the State and the people in power accountable by creating a repository of state violence and maintaining public and institutional memory.
