The Institute’s approach to research studies and dialogues is multi-disciplinary. The inter-disciplinary perspective of the Institute is reflected through pluralistic approaches both in substantive and methodological dimensions of enquiry in diverse development issues. The conceptual and theoretical debate is inbuilt in different types of researches, which are being undertaken at the Institute. The output of the studies undertaken by the Institute’s faculty have policy implications at immediate operative level as well as for long term formulation of implementational strategies.
