LexQuest Foundation (LQF) is a non-partisan, non-profit law & policy research and action organization established in 2014 in New Delhi. We conduct extensive legal and policy research and analysis to provide transformative solutions to public interest issues. At the core of our work lies our understanding of law as an expression of driving social change & creating a just & equal society.
We defend the rights of the marginalised and seek to extend and secure the civil liberties of all communities through legal & policy reform. We are dedicated to improving the public policy framework in our country to ensure sustainable development and growth for all citizens.
We strongly believe in the emancipatory potential of law, and through our multidisciplinary approach & intersectional initiatives, we ensure that our social & governance interventions have underpinnings of access to justice.
Vision: We are dedicated to expounding the rule of law and promoting constitutional values and ethos to create empowered & resilient communities.
