Samvaad is conceived as a dialogue forum that takes a problem-solving approach by first identifying the broad issue and then exploring solutions through discussion. Under the aegis of this project ICRIER has launched a quarterly roundtable discussion on globalisation, equity and jobs. Each roundtable will have participants including central and state-level government officers as well as academics, journalists and other relevant stakeholders. At the end of each dialogue, an issue brief will be prepared. The first Samvaad was held on December 7, 2017 on the topic “Revamping the Statistical Architecture for Robust Data on Jobs in India – A Dialogue on India’s Employment Data”.
