Abstract: The PhD programme at NIAS draws on, and is shaped by, the research pursued by the institute’s faculty members. The overall orientation of the PhD programme is multidisciplinary research carried out within the broad framework of conflict and security studies, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. More specifically, research at NIAS revolves around global scientific issues viz sustainable development goals, education, societal inequalities and conflicts, energy and environment, economic development, climate change, blue economy, science diplomacy, conflict and peace research, strategic and security studies, conservation biology, human-wildlife conflict, consciousness studies, philosophy, and culture and heritage. The broad interdisciplinary structure of the PhD programme also reflects the institute’s vision and mission laid out by the late J.R.D. Tata. As stated out in the mission statement of NIAS, the confluence of different traditional academic disciplines of inquiry needs to be explored in the spirit of understanding the complex nature of contemporary problems facing the society. In particular, NIAS is committed to public education, civic engagement, mentoring of junior scholars, and scholarship in support of public interest and decision making.
