Paid Internship Call: Research Associate and Research Assistant in RGNUL, Punjab [Stipend upto 50K], Apply by 20 July

About The Project

In the seven decades since its independence, India has faced and countered extremism emanating from several quarters – left-wing communist insurgencies; strategic terrorism emerging from neighbouring countries; right-wing religious extremism; and, violent separatist movements.

In the face of such opposition, the response of our nation-state has been strong-handed and resilient; thoroughly ensuring that our constitutional and social fabric remains intact. The problem of radicalization, however, doesn’t end here and threats from various quarters remain ever-present.

There is an emerging global discourse that seeks to answer the question of “why does an individual get radicalized” and a corollary question of – “how can the same be prevented.” Any endeavours to answer these questions in the Indian context requires a systematic and in-depth examination of the past and present political, socio-economic, socio-legal and psycho-social realities.

It is this examination that the proposed study seeks to undertake. The Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D), Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is the funding agency for this project. The study aims at understanding the processes of radicalisation, de-radicalization and related measures, with the help of empirical evidence.
