Research at the Centre extends beyond pure academic research and focuses on policy-oriented research that acts as important academic input for informed policymaking. This has been a part of CDS’s mission right from its inception, and this component of research often accounts for a significant share of faculty’s research time. Many of these policy research outputs may not necessarily take the form of academic publications.

By agreement among the faculty, the research output of the Centre is presented here under the rubrics Culture and Development; Decentralisation and Governance; Gender and Development; Human Development, Health and Education; Industry and Trade; Innovation and Technology; Labour, Employment and Social Security; Macroeconomic Performance; Migration; Plantation Crops; Politics and Development and Others.
