Cedos is an independent think tank and community that has been working on social development since 2010. We believe that everyone has the right to a decent standard of living. Therefore, the goal of Cedos is to find systemic causes of social problems and solutions. Our approach is based on research. We study social processes and public policies, disseminate critical knowledge, promote and implement progressive change, inform and strengthen the community that supports this change.
