About coalitiontcn

The Coalition on Two Child Norm and Coercive Population Policies is a group of individuals and organisations interested in addressing the issue of coercive population policies pushed by different states in India, especially the Two Child Norm (TCN). The recent examples of attempts to impose the TCN have come from states like Kerala, Maharashtra, Bihar. Activists including organisations and individuals from various states have expressed interest in a need for a Coalition that will anchor advocacy with the state governments to (a) prevent them from implementing the norm where it is not yet implemented but proposals towards the same have been expressed in public (b) advocate for removal of TCN through and build evidence to highlight its negative implications in states where it is already implemented. The Coalition is hosted at Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ, New Delhi).
