Nirman Foundation Grant II (2014)

The foundation has given another grant to the Centre for Political Studies to organise small annual workshops for M.Phil and Ph.D students and faculty. The university has invested the amount with SBI for a period of five years from 2014 and the quarterly interest will fund the workshops every year.

The basic idea of the fund is to encourage research and creative inquiries in the field of politics widely defined. The broad areas for the workshops are: (a) Comparative Political Theory; (b) Comparative Political Thought: Select texts; (c) Law, State and legal justice; (f) The Ethics of  Political Action.

Launched in 2015 by the Centre for Political Studies, the workshop on reading texts connects research scholars (M.Phil and Ph.D) with faculty and distinguished scholars through the shared project of reading and discussing important literature in political theory. The workshop includes participating research scholars of the centre with faculty members interpreting and understanding each text, with supporting material.

Workshops
