Abstract: The PhD programme at NIAS draws on and is shaped by 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 humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. More specifically, faculty and student research at NIAS revolves around problem areas such as strategic studies, energy and environment policy, conservation biology, human-wildlife conflict, consciousness studies, education policy, economic development and conflict, societal inequalities, culture and heritage, complex systems etc. 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 spelled 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.
