Takshashila focuses its studies on the emerging challenges facing India in the twenty-first century in areas encompassing its political, economic and security relationships with the world. Policy research programmes address specific challenges that will impact India in the short- to medium-term.
Instead of relying only on resident experts, Takshashila draws on a vast talent pool that is stretched across the globe. Connected through advanced information technology Takshashila provides a collaborative platform to connect talented individuals to ideas, resources and influence. The platform allows members to offer inputs to and discuss policy briefs online through an exclusive discussion forum, tele-conferencing and live webinars.
Policy research at Takshashila is multi-disciplinary and focuses on three Programme Areas:
Geopolitics & Foreign Policy | National Security | Inclusion & Governance
Takshashila Fellows work on multiple policy research projects under each of these areas. Current projects include:
- - Studying India's geopolitical power
- - Transforming the India-US relationship
- - Cyber strategy studies
- - Defence economics
- - Implementing police reforms
- - Energy security
- - Civil-military co-operation for conflict resolution
Call for participation
Takshashila seeks Fellows (who will lead policy research projects) and Research Associates (who will work with and assist project teams led by Fellows). Fellows & Research Associates can be based anywhere in the world and be pursuing full-time occupations. Both positions are essentially non-remunerative at this time.
