Welcome to CSIRD. Today International Relations (IR) and Global Economic Development are closely intertwined than ever before. As the global political and economic order takes shape every day, the theories and practices of IR and Development studies are constantly put under serious test. The rise of Asia and the prophecy of an Asian Century bring our region into sharp focus in global affairs. We at CSIRD locate our policy and academic attention to the actors and the underlying factors that are shaping the contemporary discourse on Asia and International Relations.
As we continue to make slow and gradual progress in engaging with leading centres of academic and policy learning, I would invite you to visit our website and share your ideas about the world and Asia. Thank you.
