The Occasional Paper Series, CSDE

Centre for the Study of Discrimination and Exclusion, JNU, is launching the "Occasional Paper Series" from September 2016, a new experiment that provides a platform to promote research and academic discussion into various aspects of discrimination and exclusion. The series is intended to be a forum for showcasing work in progress by its own faculty members as well as academics and scholars from outside the Centre on relevant topics, rather than a venue for polished work that is ready for publication. The series is designed to provide an outlet for innovative and creative research ideas on the issues of discrimination and exclusion, enabling early dissemination for authors as well as providing a means for feedback. It is also intended to act as a vibrant forum for discussions on concerned policy debates. CSDE invites submission for the very first edition of this series from experts, academics and PhD/postdoctoral scholars on wide range of topics that characterise the processes of discrimination and exclusion.


Authors should send their submissions electronically as an MS Word file to the series editor Prof. Badri Narayan at or to series co-editor Dr. Kaustav Banerjee at There is no strict word limit but the article length should not exceed 12,000 words. Please include a 300 word abstract and brief bibliography along with your CV. All submission will be peer reviewed within the Centre. The accepted submissions will be published online on the CSDE website.
