Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies
The Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS) was established in August 1996 as an independent think tank devoted to studying security issues relating to South Asia. Over the years leading strategic thinkers, academicians, former members of the Civil Services, Foreign Services, Armed Forces, Police Forces, Paramilitary Forces and media persons (print and electronic) have been associated with the Institute in its endeavour to chalk out a comprehensive framework for security studies - one which can cater to the changing demands of national, regional and global security. The Institute has also established dialogue processes with leading institutions and think tanks in India and abroad to facilitate the exchange of ideas to develop a better understanding of their point of view.
The Institute has steadily enlarged the range of its activities since its inception. Apart from analyzing the existing approaches to security, the Institute has made a foray into evolving alternative approaches to security relevant to India and the world, to promote a harmonious and secure regional and global order.
