Research

AUD is committed to a high-standard of research in the social sciences and the humanities. The work of faculty and research students at AUD seeks to contribute to knowledge at its frontiers while being informed by a consciousness of the social context in which the University is situated.  This vision also informs the participation of members of the AUD community in public discourse through interventions in public media and participation in various consultative bodies. Research at AUD is linked to the wider world of knowledge creation through an active programme of seminars and conference, visits by scholars from other institutions and collaborations with other institutions in India and abroad.
