M. Phil programme in Strategic Studies
A distinctive feature of the contemporary strategic environment has been the unprecedented and sheer dynamics of change in the concepts, paradigms, and complexities of national, regional and global security. There is new salience and awareness of the comprehensive nature of the traditional defence-related threats, but no less importantly, challenges in societal, political, economic, technological and environmental dimensions.
In the fast changing and integrated security matrix-involving both internal and external facets-societal well-being, stability and socio-economic development are inextricably intertwined. This makes it imperative that focused and policy-oriented research on strategic issues, national security and regional strategic/security developments be intensively pursued by experts in a multi-disciplinary work environment and ethos. Such analysis, of national concerns in relation to geo-strategic developments in our extended neighbourhood would not only assist the political leadership in addressing salient issues in a far more comprehensive manner and evolving appropriate national strategies, but also generate the much needed debate within our national intelligentsia, media, policy-shapers and opinion makers.
The Center for Strategic and Regional Studies (CSRS) at University of Jammu (Jammu & Kashmir), India has been conceived and established keeping in view the aforesaid imperatives to promote and undertake focused research on strategic issues, national security and geo-strategic developments in areas contiguous to India in a substantive and inclusive manner. The Center was inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir on May 26.2002.
To achieve a more effective synergy in its activities and throughput, CSRS has endeavored to draw upon the expertise available in the well-developed social sciences faculties of economics, political science, history and sociology of the University of Jammu. Besides, a full-fledged visiting lecturers programme and networking with other similar Centres/Institutes within the country and abroad would ensure that CSRS stays abreast of the rapidly-transforming developments in the chosen niches of research on security issues.
