Santosh Kumar

Santosh Kumar is a field researcher and a social worker. He has been involved for more than twenty years in the world of NGOs in south India but also abroad. In south India, he has followed the evolution of the NGO sector, from their emergence till their professionalisation and their internationalisation. Concerned by the gap between research and action, he gradually shifted from social work to applied research, in partnership with the French Institute of Pondichery with whom he has been working for almost ten years while still being involved in the voluntary sector as social worker.
