IGIDR calls for papers, 8th Biennial International Workshop: “Advances in Energy Studies”, Mumbai - Apply by February 29, 2012


Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR) is an advanced research institute established and fully funded by the Reserve Bank of India for carrying out research on development issues from a multi-disciplinary point of view. Starting as a purely research institution, it rapidly developed into a full-fledged teaching cum research organisation when it launched a Ph.D. program in the field of development studies in 1990. The objective of the Ph.D. programme is to produce researchers with diverse disciplinary backgrounds who can address issues of economics, energy and environment policies.

8th Biennial International Workshop 2012: “Advances in Energy Studies” Energy Security and Development—the Changing Global Context, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, Mumbai. The International Workshop on Advances in Energy Studies 2012 is the eighth edition in an ongoing series of biennial meetings dedicated to advances, innovation and vision in energy and energy-related environmental and socio-economic issues. Energy security for sustainable development is one of the most obvious but least discussed topics in the present times. In this workshop, the Energy Studies community will bring the issue to centre stage and challenges the participants to come up with practical solutions to the problem.
