The Council for Strategic and Defense Research is a New Delhi based think-tank that combines rigorous academic research with policy advocacy and strategic consultancy.
Based out of New Delhi — a key national capital in the emerging geopolitics of South Asia and Indo-Pacific — allows us to understand and help shape the ever-changing geo-political panorama of the region. We work on issues such as foreign policy, regional connectivity, defense strategy, intelligence, strategic technologies, conflict resolution, peacebuilding, climate change and energy security.
CSDR’s multidisciplinary network of research professionals and senior policy practitioners fuses incisive research with experiential knowledge. This collaboration underpins our programmatic activities — empowering us to conduct timely and independent analysis, produce policy relevant knowledge, and curate multi-stakeholder dialogue platforms — for governments, businesses, research endowments and other associated institutions.
