The Centre for Peace and Development takes a comprehensive vision of Peace and construes in the context of human security and development. The aim of this initiative is to wedge the gulf between theory and practice in policy-making through a synthesis of the academic findings and experiential inputs from practitioners and professionals. Our mission is to establish a wide peace constituency of resource persons and scholars stretching within and beyond South Asia through workshops and dialogues and publications.
The academic and researcher at the centre are involve in developing theories and pedagogy of peace and development research and a self- sufficient research base to support the centre’s programmes and activities.
Exploring creative depths
The centre has published peer reviewed journal “Peaceworks” for promoting interdisciplinary writings on varied issues of Peacebuilding and Development in South Asia since 2011.
