About COS Project: In partnership with University of Texas, Austin PCI is currently conducting a survey in UP to assess the impact of formal education on the kinds of reasons people use, the beliefs and values they adopt, and the kind of behaviours they engage in. To examine this empirically, we will conduct research in populations of diverse faiths and denominations that encompass a spectrum from no schooling to multi-generational schooling.
